Emergency and Humanitarian Action

“The goal of the EHA Programme is to reduce the health consequences of emergencies, disasters, crisis and conflicts, and to minimize their social and economic impact.”

- WHO Western Pacific Region -

Through a concerted effort across the WHO, the Emergency and Humanitarian Action (EHA) programme aims to increase the capacity and self-reliance of countries through:

  • disaster risk reduction;
  • health sector emergency preparedness;
  • mitigation of health consequences in times of emergencies; and
  • creation of a synergy between emergency action and sustainable development.
