Public Health in WASH during Emergencies Training

22 October - 26 October

Event Details: Public Health in WASH during Emergencies Training 

INTRODUCTION

In the event of a disaster, the existing water storage facilities are inadequate to meet the current or expected demands. The existing water supply pipelines are vulnerable and basic WASH materials are lacking to meet the demand in the event of the disaster. Preparedness and response capacities of health facilities are insufficient due to the lack of trained professional human resources, lack of coordination and inadequate policies. Issues at Health Sector level include the lack of health personnel preparedness for hazards other than epidemics, lack of awareness and knowledge on DRM, the lack of implementation of the health disaster preparedness and response plans, and no mechanism for networking and resources sharing.
