Communicable diseases following natural disasters: Risk assessment and priority interventions

The Communicable Diseases Working Group on Emergencies (CD-WGE) at WHO/HQ has developed this document to describe the communicable disease risks in populations affected by natural disasters. It is hoped that this document, by detailing the priority measures that are necessary to reduce the impact of communicable diseases following natural disasters, will help to protect the health of disaster-affected populations.
