"The Public Health Addendum to the Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities strengthens and integrates coverage of the many aspects of public health that are relevant to disaster planning, mitigation and response. These include, but are not limited to: sanitation, disease prevention, nutrition, care for those who are already sick or disabled as a disaster happens, those who are injured or become sick as a result of the disaster, mental health issues, health logistics, and so on.
The Addendum is structured around the same Ten Essentials for Making Cities Resilient, the 10-point check list of the Making Cities Resilient Campaign, used by the original Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities; and it adopts the same format for its questions and scoring. It is designed to be used in parallel with the original Scorecard, perhaps by a separate sub-team of the main city resilience team. It will require inputs from public health professionals in the relevant disciplines to complete it".Back
