Posted on

WiRED International is pleased to announce acceptance into the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) of the Organization of American States (OAS).

WiRED Executive Director Gary Selnow, Ph.D., said, “As a recognized CSO, WiRED hopes to expand our work in Central and South America and the Caribbean. We believe that our educational programs, serving Latin America for more than 20 years, can grow as a critical element to improve the health and well-being of populations in this region. During our years on the ground with our valued partners in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Peru and Brazil, we have developed and run education programs that have provided a solid foundation on which people can make wise decisions and contribute to their disease prevention behaviors and improved health.”
