Resource Mobilization For Health Action In Crises - Nepal
PDF File Size: 150 KB | Download   
Nepal is one of the world's poorest countries with 45% of the population living below the poverty line. As much as 50% of children under age of 3 suffer from stunted growth. The country is highly susceptible to natural disasters such as earthquakes, recurrent floods, and landslides. There are numerous gaps in health pre-paredness and mitigation. No hospital in the country completely meets earthquake resistant standards. An armed Maoist insurgency which began in 1996 has spread all over the country, seriously affecting 80% of the countryside, and leaving more than 12,000 people killed.WHO actions include Assessing health needs, identifying and prioritizing health problems; Coordinating emergency health action; Identifying and filling gaps in disaster preparedness and response and Strengthening local capacity for better health outcomes.
