Disease Control in Humanitarian Emergencies

Risk assessments in acute emergencies

Risk assessments are written and produced rapidly in response to acute humanitarian emergencies resulting from natural disasters, sudden conflict or civil strife. Risk assessments identify the disease and public health threats faced by the emergency-affected populations, prioritize interventions and provide policy guidance and information sources for the control of diseases relevant to the emergency context.
