Build back better: reconstruction and rehabilitation strategy, health sector

Source(s):  Earthquake Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Authority (ERRA)

ERRA’s health policy delineates guiding principles, guidelines and strategy for reconstruction in the earthquake-affected districts. The health component of Government’s ‘Build Back Better’ policy is based on the Humanitarian charter for minimum standards for health care, including the right to ‘health for all’ and respect of the dignity of the population affected by the disaster. The health strategy has been constructed on the key principles of equity, access to essential health care, timeliness, results, accountability, placement of strong local leadership and strategic coordination of the effort. The strategy also envisages addressing the special needs of vulnerable population, especially women and children who are the major clients of the health system, and the needs of persons with disabilities and psychological trauma.
