The world is dealing with emergencies of unprecedented scale. 130 million people need humanitarian assistance worldwide. No organization can do it alone. The World Health Organization (WHO) works on health emergencies of all kinds ranging from disease outbreaks to conflicts to natural disasters.

In all instances, WHO relies on partners through networks, such as the Global Health Cluster, Standby Partners, Emergency Medical Teams and the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network.

WHO also works closely with Member States, international partners, and local institutions to help communities prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies, disasters and crises.

We are committed to:

  • Saving lives and reducing suffering in times of crises
  • Building efficient partnerships for emergency management and ensuring these are properly coordinated
  • Advocating for political support and consistent resources for disaster preparedness, response, and recovery
  • Developing evidence-based guidelines for all phases of emergency work in the health sector
  • Strengthening capacity and resilience of health systems and countries to mitigate and manage disasters
  • Ensuring international capacity is available to support countries for emergency response through training and establishment of surge capacity.

Effective response to the world’s health crises would be impossible without the coordinated teamwork of the Global Health Cluster. More than 700 partners combine their technical and operational abilities to support the national health response in crisis-affected countries to ensure that people in need receive essential health care. There are 23 Health Clusters currently active in various crisis-affected countries with WHO functioning as lead or co-lead agency in all. Worldwide, the Global Health Cluster aims to help some 69.7 million people.

Standby Partnerships

66顺彩票appIn emergencies, extra personnel must quickly be in place to support WHO’s work. Through Standby Partners, WHO rapidly mobilizes qualified and experienced professionals to respond to the health consequences of acute and protracted emergencies and disease outbreaks. Since 2013, WHO has collaborated with Standby Partner organizations to support both WHO and the Health Cluster’s work during an emergency.

Emergency medical teams

In cooperation with United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and with host-country health ministries, WHO helped to select and to guide the work of emergency medical teams providing clinical care in the wake of emergencies.
