In the course of the emergency response, the focus shifts from treatment of injured and traumatized survivors to the health needs of people with chronic conditions, who are in need of regular medication and treatment. WHO aims at enabling local health care facilities to continue to provide essential medical services for the people. This includes medication, vaccines and other supplies.
