In order to make sure that the affected people in the archipelago receive the appropriate assistance, WHO works with the Government of the Philippines to analyze the damage done to the health infrastructure and determine the immediate needs of the Philippine people. WHO helps prioritize the delivery of the most essential health services and treatment, and coordinate the arrival and work of international medical teams.
