Summer usually tests the disaster response capacity of Nepal, when the monsoons trigger water induced disasters. This year Nepal’s Western regions were most severely affected by floods and landslides. Unlike in 2002 and 2004, where a large number of families were displaced, the figures for this year were much less, totaling about 1,300 displaced families. The attention and prompt response by several agencies bear witness to the increased recognision of disaster management in Nepal. Acknowledging the importance of health action in crisis, many stakeholders involved in public health in Nepal, proposed that WHO’s EHA team should strengthen its work and expand its activities. These sentiments were strongly expressed at the WHO’s meeting with external development partners to discuss the future direction of WHO Nepal. A team from WHO Headquarters and the Regional Office was in Nepal to revise the draft Country Corporation Strategy outlining the activities of the WHO country office for the next six years. These positive signals from partner agencies will contribute to enhancing EHA‘s new CAP programme.
