Health Sector Disaster Recovery Framework Guide
The Disaster Recovery Framework (DRF) Guide for the Health Sector provides guidance on how to implement a comprehensive, integrated, and structured approach to disaster recovery. Its overarching goal is to minimize the impact of the disaster on communities and help countries to recover quickly and effectively from disasters, in coordination with key stakeholders.
The DRF Guide for the Health Sector is adapted from the generic DRF Guide, and draws on the Implementation Guide For Health Systems Recovery in Emergencies, the Health Emergency and Disaster Risk Management Framework as well as the Disaster Recovery Guidance Series. The guide also makes links with multi-sectoral, government-led recovery planning processes such as the Post-Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA), and it supports the implementation of the HDPN.
The objectives and intended accomplishments of the guide are to:
Clarify the roles and responsibilities of the different stakeholders involved in disaster recovery, such as government agencies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), the private sector, and international development partners, and ensure that all parties work together effectively and efficiently towards the best possible outcomes.
Promote coordination and collaboration among the different health sector actors and stakeholders, including through the sharing of information, resources, and best practices, to ensure that recovery efforts are aligned and complementary.
Improve recovery and reconstruction efforts, by providing guidance on how to assess and prioritize needs, and develop, and implement, recovery strategies which promote sustainable development practices that help reduce vulnerability to future disasters.
