All communities are vulnerable to emergency situations. The question is not "if" a disaster will occur, but "when". The ability to assess the hazards and to address them can help reduce the risks of a disaster occurring. This is more effective and as important as responding to disasters and dealing with the consequences. The Disaster Management and Emergency Planning course has been developed to introduce you to the concepts and processes of emergency planning and management of disasters within a developing world context. The course is designed to help you: Demonstrate a systematic understanding of the key stages of emergency planning and response, the hazards, and potential public health needs in the event of a disaster occurring. Be able to devise, critically review and appraise an emergency plan. Apply knowledge and understanding of the importance and value of the emergency needs assessment, and be able to explain the process of how this assessment is organized and carried out.
