Like many other countries in Central America, El Salvador is highly exposed to natural disasters – hurricanes, earthquakes, floods and landslides are recurring and have led to the loss of many lives.

Save the Children and its partners integrated health information and interventions into disaster risk reduction activities with a special focus on the most vulnerable groups that are often overlooked in both preparation and in response to emergencies.
