The WHO and UNISDR Secretariat will also be publishing a collection of good practices by International Day for Disaster Reduction October 2009. If you think that your initiative is an example of a good practice that should be replicated, please fill in the submission template and email it to the address specified.
A good practice should show innovative qualities and results, as well the potential for replication. It could illustrate one or several initiatives, such as:
safe hospital construction, from design to implementation
cost-effective retrofitting of structural or non-structural facilities
staff preparedness plans that are implemented and sustainable
health workers developing their disaster risk reduction skills and becoming advocates for safer hospitals
implementing risk assessments such as the Hospital Safety Index
working with line Ministries to produce and enforce government policies on safer hospitals, such as building codes and risk assessments
Note: Not all case studies or good practice submissions will be published in full or linked to on this website, but a list of all relevant contributions will be made available in a matrix of initiatives.
