To promote best practices in disaster research and evaluation, the Harvard FXB Center for Health and Human Rights partnered with Curtin University, Kunming Medical University, the Centre for Victims of Torture Nepal and CCOUC to develop a research training guide and accompanying study tools. The resulting manual provides guidance for creating effective research questions, building strong partnerships, and collecting data in emergencies, illustrated with real-life examples.
Three pieces of publications have been published with the findings of the Scoping Study done in 2016. An article titled “Urban Disaster Preparedness of Hong Kong Residents: a territory-wide survey" was published on 21 April 2017 in the International Journal of Disaster Risk Reduction.
Between 2005 and 2014, disasters have caused total damage of US$1.4 trillion worldwide, with 1.7 billion people affected and 0.7 million killed [1]. With climate change, urbanization, environmental degradation and poverty, the world has been experiencing disasters at a higher frequency and intensity. To be effective, disaster management strategy must be able to meet the health needs of the affected population. With non-communicable diseases (NCDs) now being the major disease burden and leading causes of death worldwide, the traditional health focus of humanitarian response on acute conditions is no longer sufficient to address population health needs in disaster and emergency context. The significance of NCDs management and planning for potential humanitarian context must be recognized.
In July 2017, the Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Insitute (HKJCDPRI) met with the Hong Kong Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO) of the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) to discuss potential in collaboration including identifying ways to improve landslide early warning system and public education to raise awareness of landslide safety.
