India: Guidelines for preparation of action plan - prevention and management of heat-wave

There has been an increasing trend of heat-wave in India over the past several years whereby several cities in India have been severely affected. The increased occurrences and severity of heat-waves is a wake-up call for all agencies to take necessary action for prevention, preparedness and community outreach to save the lives of the general public, livestock and wild life.

Heat Wave Guidelines aim to facilitate the stakeholders in preparing a Heat Wave Management Plan by providing insight into the heat related illness and the necessary mitigative and response actions to be undertaken. It will also help in mobilization and coordination of various departments, individuals and communities to help and protect their neighbours, friends, relatives, and themselves against avoidable health problems during spells of very hot weather.
