There were 1 143 health care centers damaged by earthquakes, heavy rains and floods in Peru between 1982 and 2005. Damages to health care centers interrupted health care programs and medical attention. They also produced a huge expense in rehabilitation and reconstruction of health care centers. Therefore, it is necessary to protect health care services and develops a "hospitals safe against disaster" policy that includes actions to prevent or reduce the structural, non structural and functional vulnerabilities in new establishments and those that are currently operating.
