About

This site is a compendium of resources related to medical and public health issues of children in disasters and emergencies. Links are provided to both journal articles and to other documents and materials that may be useful in preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery activities. Resources are national or international in scope. The intent of this compendium is to consolidate the multitude of resources available across a variety of organizations, Web sites, databases and training sites, making the search for relevant materials simpler and more direct. The resources target health providers, emergency and community planners, and others in the disaster workforce who work with or on behalf of children.
