One million safe schools and hospitals campaign: advocacy guide

This guide aims to raise the awareness of primary stakeholders — children, teachers, parents, medical doctors, nurses, technicians, administrators, government and the public — on the urgency of making schools and hospitals safe from disasters, especially those located in hazard-prone regions. It presents in simple terms the concepts of safety, hazard, vulnerability and risk. It also provides the reader key questions for self assessment and reflection regarding the safety conditions of his/her school or hospital. Finally, it looks forward to encourage the reader to make a pledge in this global initiative aimed at creating a demand to ensure the safety of schools and hospitals from disasters.
