RODRIGUEZ ESTEVES, Juan Manuel. Disasters and COVID-19: two models to reduce risk in Mexico.Translated byLuis Cejudo-Espinoza. Frontera norte [online]. 2022, vol.34, e2161.  Epub June 13, 2022. ISSN 2594-0260.

The objective is to analyze the scope of the National Civil Protection System (SINAPROC) and the National Health System (SNS), and its relationship to the attention of the Covid-19 pandemic. The study is within the approach to disaster risk, considering how the concretion of a threat, exposition and vulnerability can affect society. The first part makes a diagnosis of the impact of disasters associated with natural phenomena, as well as the evolution of the COVID-19. Subsequently, the legal framework underpinning both systems is discussed, considering their structure and components for identifying possible mechanisms of collaboration. Among the conclusions is that, despite being two vertical models of intervention, the legislation incorporates both health and disaster risk, which could complement each other. At the end of the pandemic, the strategy to strengthen the health risk management model should be evaluated from the disaster risk approach.

Keywords : risk management; COVID-19; national health system; states; Mexico.
