Glossary of Health Emergency and Disaster Risk Management Terminology

WHO has conducted a Glossary that aims to enable all actors, sectors and communities to work together more efficiently. The glossary is developed to remedy the lack of standardized terminology in the field of Health Emergency and Disaster Risk Management (Health EDRM). It is designed for practitioners, policymakers and other stakeholders who work in the fields that contribute to reducing the health risks and consequences of all types of emergencies and disasters.
