Bangkok Principles for the implementation of the health aspects of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030

The International Conference on the Implementation of the Health Aspects of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 recommended seven measures to prevent and/or reduce the risk of health emergencies such as pandemics that have the potential for huge social and economic impact.

The ‘Bangkok Principles’ place strengthened coordination at the heart of efforts to reduce risk from biological hazards. They call for an inter-operable, multi-sectoral approach to promote systematic cooperation, integration and, ultimately, coherence between disaster and health risk management.

The Principles build on the commonality between the two realms, such as the shared need for risk assessment, surveillance and early warning systems, resilient infrastructure, and coordinated incident management. This strengthened coherence is needed as the inter-connected and transboundary nature of hazard risk increases.
