dc.description.abstractThe Preparedness Index for Health Emergencies and Disasters is a voluntary tool to be used by health sector authorities to measure progress in emergency and disaster preparedness with a multi-hazard approach and in line with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Strategic Framework for Emergency Preparedness. The Preparedness Index incorporates the following cross-cutting approaches: people-centered actions; gender, equity, ethnicity, human rights and disability; and shared responsibility between national and sub-national institutions and authorities, and the public and private sectors...The objective of the Preparedness Index for health Emergencies and Disasters is to estimate the national or sub-national health preparedness capacity to deal with natural, anthropic and health events (epidemics) that generate emergencies and disasters, as well as the capacity of the health sector to recover early from the effects of these events.en_US
