English term or phrase: PAHO (acronym)
According to the most reliable information available to PAHO, it has been calculated that 20,000 deaths from cervical cancer occur annually in the Region of the Americas....

Could you please help me to find with this acronym? Can´t find it.

Thank you.

Spanish translation:OPS
Explanation:
If you are to use an accronym for the translation, this is it.
It stands for Organización Panamericana de la Salud and we know it by far as OPS.
It is the same that with WHO (World Health Organization), which in Spanish is OMS. I recommend you use the accronym.

Cuando tengas una duda, visita el sitio google.com. Utilizando la opción de lengua (hasta diez lenguas), casi siempre hallas lo que buscas. ¡Es bárbaro, como dicen los Uruguayos y Argentinos!
