Non-Structural Vulnerability Assessment of Hospitals in Nepal
PDF File Size: 3.02 MB | Download   
The report presents the methodology and findings of a seismic non-structural vulnerability assessment of 9 major hospitals in Nepal.The study was conducted by National Society for Earthquake Technology-Nepal (NSET) under a contract with WHO-Nepal during March-November 2003.
Nepal has a high seismic risk and low level of preparedness in critical infrastructures including health facilities. In the past, big earthquakes such as the Great Nepal-Bihar earthquake in 1934 have caused huge numbers of casualties and damage to structures.The project "Non-Structural Vulnerability Assessment of Hospitals in Nepal" emphasizes the development of appropriate methodology for carrying out such non-structural vulneribility assessment.
