WPRO EHA reviews safe hospitals project 2-4 March 2011

9 March 2011 – The Emergency and Humanitarian Action (EHA) unit of the WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific (WPRO), in partnership with the University of the Philippines Open University (UPOU), conducted the midterm review of the second phase of the Hospitals Safe from Disasters (HSFD) campaign on 2-4 March 2011 in Manila.

The second phase of the project aims to expand mapping and assessment of different levels of hospitals in small and medium sized cities, integrate HSFD concepts in national development plans and policies, and support further development and adaptation of tools and resources. This will mainstream disaster risk reduction in the health sector within the framework of the global campaign for safer cities in 2010-2011.
