ISDR-Biblio 3: Health, disasters and risk

This third ISDR-Biblio is in line with the theme of the 2008-2009 World Disaster Reduction Campaign on Hospitals Safe from Disasters: Reduce Risk, Protect Health Facilities, Save Lives. The World Health Organization (WHO) and its regional offices with some support from the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery of the World Bank are partnering with the secretariat of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UN/ISDR) on this campaign and on the preparation of the ISDR-Biblio 3.

ISDR-Biblio 3 addresses a more broader area than the campaign which focuses on the protection of health facilities in order to ensure they can function during and in the aftermath of disasters. It contains additional literature on health and disaster risk; disaster and emergency management; health facilities and services; environment: impact on health; climate change effects on health; mental health; mitigation and preparedness; public health; water and sanitation; and gender and health.
