ABSTRACT

Incorporar una perspectiva que tenga en cuenta consideraciones sobre equidad, género y diversidad cultural es el primer paso hacia una forma de comunicación que responda a las realidades múltiples y complejas de los diferentes países de la Región de las Américas. Esta guía práctica tiene por objetivo ayudar a los equipos de comunicación de la Organización Panamericana de la Salud a integrar este enfoque en su trabajo diario y a elaborar materiales que se adapten a las particularidades de cada tipo de público. En ella se insta a promover el acercamiento a las comunidades beneficiarias y se recogen ejemplos prácticos de uso inclusivo del lenguaje, pautas para la representación de la diversidad sociocultural, listas de verificación para evaluar la pertinencia y recomendaciones específicas para el contexto de las vacunas contra la COVID-19.

ABSTRACT

The Region of the Americas constitutes an extremely rich territory from the point of view of cultural diversity, in which a variety of challenges related to the recognition and respect of the human rights of members of indigenous peoples, Afro-descendants, Roma, as well as other ethnic groups are presented. Throughout the life course, these people experience structural discrimination and under-representation and inclusion in decision-making processes, which hinders their access to health services, affects the quality of care they receive, and has an overall effect on their living conditions. Therefore, the protection and promotion of their health and socio-economic security is a matter not only of public policy, but also of the protection and exercise of human rights. This publication presents the international and regional human rights instruments and systems for the protection of human rights established by the United Nations and the Inter-American Human Rights System, as well as measures to make them effective, with special emphasis on the right to health of these groups in the countries of the Americas.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: In March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared that the outbreak of COVID-19, the disease caused by a new coronavirus, constituted a pandemic, given the speed and scale of its transmission. The Region of the Americas is characterized by its rich multi-ethnic and multicultural heritage. Nonetheless, indigenous peoples, Afro-descendants, and other ethnic groups are often subject to discrimination and exclusion, resulting in health inequities. COVID-19 may have a greater impact on certain populations, such as indigenous peoples and Afro-descendants. In 2017, the Member States of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) approved the first Policy on Ethnicity and Health (document CSP29/7, Rev.1), which is based on recognition of the differences among ethnic groups, as well as their respective challenges, needs, and historical contexts. It also underscores the need for an intercultural approach grounded in equality and mutual respect to improve health outcomes and advance toward universal health. PAHO has prioritized ethnicity as a cross-cutting issue in emergency and disaster management. This is reflected in a series of mandates such as the Plan of Action for Disaster Risk Reduction 2016-2021 and various manuals, guidelines, and initiatives.

ABSTRACT

[Introducción]. Las plantas medicinales han significado a través de la historia una de las principales alternativas en el cuidado de la salud. El Perú, a pesar de ser un país megadiverso, no ha prestado mucha atención al desarrollo de la cadena de valor de las plantas medicinales. Algunos de los mayores desafíos al respecto son el registro adecuado de las plantas, la protección de la biodiversidad, la inversión en investigación, y la garantía de calidad y seguridad de su uso. Con el objetivo de avanzar en el conocimiento y aprovechamiento de las plantas medicinales de Perú, se conformó el Grupo Técnico de Expertos en Plantas Medicinales, compuesto por investigadores de todas las ramas vinculadas en su estudio. El 19 de marzo de 2018 tuvo lugar la Reunión Técnica "Plantas Medicinales y Salud Pública: pasado, Presente y Futuro", en la sede de la Organización Panamericana de la Salud en Perú. Este boletín es una compilación de la información y discusión con los aportes de los asistentes, como punto de inicio para la colaboración en el avance en el desarrollo de investigación y uso adecuado de la medicina tradicional.
