The response to the 2015 Nepal earthquakes: the value of preparedness [YouTube]

Thanks to the preparations Nepal’s government had made with support from WHO and its partners, when the earthquake struck on 25 April, health services kept functioning in many areas that had been affected. But the country still has great needs – including facing the threat of communicable disease outbreaks and avalanches – and requires continued international support.
