RODRIGUEZ-SANCHEZ, Diana Ivonne; ESCAMILLA-SANTIAGO, Ricardo Antonio; GARCIA-RODRIGUEZ, Gabriel  e  LOPEZ-CERVANTES, Malaquías. Earthquakes and health in Mexico: emergency care in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2018, vol.60, suppl.1, pp.90-96. ISSN 0036-3634.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21149/9405.

On September 7, 2017, an earthquake measuring 8.2 on the Richter scale recorded, with the greatest impact in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec region. The response mechanism by the health sector implemented immediately through the Health Security Operative. The priority actions were focused on restoring the local capacity of medical attention, in the identification of prevalent diseases, and in carrying out public health actions. However, despite the experiences obtained in 1985, there is still a glimpse of a shortage of planning and assignment of responsibilities.
