In an effort to assist the thousands of aid workers in Haiti responding to the aftermath of the 7.0 earthquake and subsequent aftershocks, K4Health has published the Haiti Relief Toolkit
which provides practical and technical health-related information for those on the ground.
The Haiti Relief Toolkit is a resource to help health workers respond more effectively to the earthquake relief efforts underway in Haiti. The toolkit covers the vital sectors in emergencies, including health, water and sanitation, food security, and shelter. It also covers key field activities supporting the operations, such as logistics, and will be available in English, French, Spanish, and Creole.
To browse the contents of the toolkit, use the tabs to view key topics. You can also use the Quick Links to access key information quickly, such as maps of Haiti and a list of relief organizations working on the ground. The toolkit is accessible online, but K4Health will also be uploading it to flash drives and shipping them to Haiti so that those on the front line can access the information easily and fast.
If you have resources related to emergency response or any of the topics listed above that you would like to suggest to be considered for inclusion, please use the toolkit’s discussion board
The devastation in Haiti is severe and those providing relief need as much support as possible. Please join us to bring the essential knowledge and resources needed on the ground to alleviate some of the burden.
If you have any questions concerning the toolkit, please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment on the discussion board.
