2015 Report on WHO's Work in Emergency Risk and Crisis Management

The 2015 Report on WHO's Work in Emergency Risk and Crisis Management details key aspects of WHO's work on emergencies in 2015, a year when the Organization provided assistance to more than 40 countries dealing with health emergencies, including seven simultaneous Grade 3 emergencies — the most in any single year on record. These emergencies – in Central African Republic, Iraq, Nepal, South Sudan, Syria, and Yemen — placed unprecedented strains on the Organization at all levels.
