Lessons from Nepal: How do you prepare for a disaster? [YouTube]

During the disaster response, WHO worked in coordination with many national and international medical teams at the ground being able to cover the affected areas in coordination. Without proper coordination, their efforts are duplicated and that creates gap, there are people somewhere else who could be getting help, but aren't. Medicines and supplies could go to waste. Nepal has withstood all the pressures and has been able to work under stress because of the preparedness and the value it possess, all Nepalese probably have understood in some hard way the value of preparedness and learnt from the experiences. Rebuilding after a disaster is an opportunity to be better prepared for the next.
