UNISDR and WHO are inviting submissions from all stakeholders on good practices and lessons learned on making 'Hospitals Safe from Disasters': including health authorities, health facilities, governments, international agencies, health professionals, NGOs, architects, engineers, critical infrastructure, private sector, professional associations and academic institutions.
The World Disaster Reduction Campaign: 'Hospitals Safe from Disasters' targets all health facilities – whether large or small, urban or rural – and the workforce and infrastructure that support them. Hospitals safe from disasters are about more than just protecting physical structures. Hospitals are safe from disasters when health services are accessible and functioning, at optimal capacity, immediately after a hazard strikes. For more about the campaign please see: www.safehospitals.info (relaunching 8 October 2008 with a good practices section).
