  • Share

In addition to rebuilding health facilities seriously damaged or destroyed in a disaster, planning for reconstruction in the health sector should look to the future and prioritize other areas where strengthening contributes to improved preparedness and response, including:

  • Strengthening the primary care level
  • Procurement of basic equipment
  • Water and sewerage networks
  • Strengthening the sector’s Emergency Operations Centers (health EOCs)
  • Strengthening technical units and programs
  • Updating guides, standards, and regulations
