Guidelines on Non-Structural Safety in Health Facilities
PDF File Size: 3.87 MB | Download   
Throughout history, it has been demonstrated over and over again that Nepal is a highly earthquake prone country. In any disaster response, health facilities are expected to play an essential role. This is especially the case when responding to a major earthquake where the number of people sustaining injuries tends to be relatively high and the need for medical care is pronounced immediately after the earthquake.
The report consists of a discussion of the essential role of health services immediately following a medium or large-scale earthquake and an outline of the possible threat to lives and functionality of the health facilities stemming from damage to non-structural components.
