WHO-UNDP collaboration on improving hospital safety in Tajikistan: disaster risk reduction–development case study

Source(s):  United Nations Development Programme - Headquarters (UNDP)
World Health Organization - Regional Office for Europe (WHO - Europe)

This case study reviews the UNDP-WHO collaboration in Tajikistan on a pilot project to reduce disaster risk and to improve the safety of health care facilities in rural areas of the country. Identifying seismic risk reduction as an appropriate target area for the project, it reports on the numerous challenges and useful lessons on implementing risk reduction involving existing infrastructure. It also addresses the shift from a predominant focus on disaster warning and response to reducing the causes of disaster damage in risk management practice, which puts a priority on incorporating disaster risk reduction into the actual process of development to improve the resilience and sustainability of developmental efforts in the field of disaster management.
