Although many emergencies and disasters are often unpredictable, much can be done to reduce their health impact by reducing the risks and by strengthening the response capacity of communities at risk.
Population growth, expansion into previously uninhabited areas and environmental degradation have all increased the exposure of most countries to natural hazards including cyclonic storms, floods, and famine, while exposure to hazards such as earthquakes and tsunamis is ever-present in many regions of the world.
According to the WHO Global Health Survey, the most common types of emergencies in surveyed countries were caused by floods, earthquakes, and severe storms, including snowstorms.
More than half of the respondents did not recognize the near-universal exposure of human populations to technological hazards in the 21st century. This suggests a need to adopt an “all hazards” approach to national health emergency preparedness and response policies and programs, utilizing generic arrangements that are suitable for any type of emergency or disaster, given the diverse nature of the reported natural hazards experienced in the last.
