Emergency Preparedness And Disaster Management In Health Institutions

“There is need to promote health emergency preparedness among general public and to strengthen the health sectors capability to respond to emergencies, disasters or calamities.”

Threats and risks are becoming increasingly complex due to the diversity of natural hazards affecting our country and the growth of transnational threats arising from consequences of terrorism, globalized disease outbreak, climate change, critical infrastructure interdependencies and cyber attacks. Emergencies can quickly escalate in scope and severity, cross jurisdictional lines, take on international dimensions and result in significant human and economic losses.

"Emergency Preparedness is the discipline of dealing with and avoiding both natural and manmade disasters.". It involves mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery in order to lessen the impact of disasters.

A key function of the Government is to protect the safety and security of people. Government institutions are increasing their focus on Disaster management activities, given the evolving risk environment in their areas of responsibility. It can save lives, preserve the environment and protect property by raising the understanding of risks and by contributing to a safer, more prosperous and resilient.
