Nepal Earthquake - Health Cluster Bulletin # 6 (19 June 2015)
PDF File Size: 1.06 MB | Download   
Following the 25 April earthquake and 12 May aftershock, a total of 7324 injured have undergone surgery (3221 major and 4103 minor) out of which more than 1500 injured have an on-going care and rehabilitation needs. Seven weeks into the response, the services provided by the Foreign Medical Teams (FMTs) are being taken over by regular health services resumed through temporary structures such as tents. The hospital based syndromic surveillance of epidemic prone communicable diseases shows no confirmation of outbreak and epidemic in the affected districts. There is concern of potential disruption to some
patients’ treatment for chronic diseases (TB, HIV, leprosy, diabetes etc) with many treatment centres being damaged in the earthquakes. Health facilities in the remote area of the most affected districts are at the increased risk of being further isolated due to road blockade caused by floods and landslides during the monsoon season. Ministry of Health and Population (MOHP) has developed the Standard Guidelines for the Post Disaster Reconstruction of Health Facilities with technical specifications and requirements for post-disaster reconstruction of damaged health facilities.
