WHO urgently requires US$ 5 million for its humanitarian health response to the disaster in Nepal
WHO is mobilizing an urgent response in support of the Ministry of Health to meet the humanitarian health needs of those affected by the devastating earthquake in the country. Management of casualties and injuries remains the most pressing need in Kathmandu. Hospitals are overwhelmed with casualties, and injuries from collapsed buildings. Doctors are reported to be treating people in the streets.

Nepal Common Appeal for Transition Support 2007
The appeal has been reasonably well funded for this period in the year, with most sectors having received some contributions, though major gaps remain in the areas of mine action, emergency food security and malnutrition, emergency preparedness - particularly for emergency health services, disease surveillance, and coordination. A number of projects has been removed or modified, and a number of new emergency projects added, including a major food project from the World Food Programme (WFP), which takes the total appeal to US$ 89 million and brings the current funding percentage to 39%.
Call for resource mobilization
WHO estimates a total financial requirement of US$ 1.4 million to effectively carry out the above mentioned activities. Specific project proposals are available upon request.
