Post-disaster needs assessment guidelines : health (Inglês)

This document provides guidance to national and international stakeholders involved in the health sector during Post Disaster Needs Assessments (PDNA) processes and recovery planning. The guidance is based on applying an integrated approach when undertaking the PDNA process. An integrated approach involves taking the standard damage and loss assessment methodology and including a recovery strategy that puts special emphasis on the human condition. This guidance brings together the four components needed for a comprehensive PDNA analysis, which are: (i) health infrastructure and assets; (ii) delivery of health services (including access to and changes in demand for services); (iii) health governance processes; and (iv) vulnerability and health risks of the affected population. These elements will be used consistently when describing the pre-disaster baseline, the effects of the disaster, the estimation of the economic value of damage and loss, the disaster’s impact on the economy and human development, and what is needed for a recovery and reconstruction strategy, including elements of building back better (referred to as BBB) and related costing. Building back better refers to the concept that recovery and reconstruction should not only aim at restoring the health system to its pre-disaster condition, but also should address underlying vulnerabilities that may have contributed to the extent of the disaster’s effects. Building back better aims to strengthen the resilience of the health system and communities so that they can better manage future disasters and their risks to the health sector.
