4.2.4 The safe hospital index: benefits and how to implement the program in your own country - Dr Rudi Coninx, (Coordinator of Humanitarian Policy and Guidance in WHO’s Health Emergencies Program)

Course video 46 of 65

This module speaks of how health services are valuable at any time, but particularly during emergencies resulting from any hazard (radio nuclear, disease, chemical, food safety, social/political, natural); during emergencies, hospitals may face the additional burden of overcrowding, infrastructure damage, loss of staff, and increased violence against health care facilities and workers becoming victims of the emergencies themselves; therefore hospitals must be strengthened to stay safe and resilient even when faced with these difficult challenges.
