An earthquake measuring 7.9 on the Richter Scale has caused heavy damage and reportedly
over 2,200 deaths in Nepal and affected over 5 million people. WHO is mobilizing an urgent response in support of the Ministry of Health (MOH) to meet the humanitarian health needs of those affected by the devastating earthquake in the country For several years, WHO has worked closely with the MOH on its disaster preparedness plan and we are assisting with its urgent implementation. Within hours of the tragedy, WHO disbursed medical supplies to cover the health needs of more than 40 000 people for three months. These supplies are in the form of inter-agency emergency health kits and were given to hospitals in Nepal treating the injured. The kits, developed by WHO, can also be used for initial supply of primary health care facilities where the normal system of provision has broken down. The WHO emergency kits disbursed his morning include medicines, disposables and instruments. Each kit has a basic and supplementary unit. It contains non-injectable drugs, medical supplies and some essential equipment, accompanied by simple treatment guidelines. Basic equipment also has a complete sterilization set and items to help provide for clean water at the health facility. The supplementary unit contains drugs, renewable supplies and equipment needed by doctors working in first- or second-referral health facilities. WHO also immediately made available US$ 175 000 to the Ministry of Health as the first tranche of WHO’s South-East Asia Regional Health Emergency Fund (SEARHEF). The SEARHEF funds are aimed at meeting immediate financial needs and to fill critical gaps in the aftermath of a disaster.
