Less than two hours after a devastating earthquake hit last month, WHO’s South-East Asia Regional Director, Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh, spoke to Nepal’s Minister of Health and Population to assess how the Organization could best help respond to the country’s urgent medical needs. From financial assistance, essential medicines and supplies to immunization, psychosocial support and disease surveillance, Dr Khetrapal Singh outlines just some examples of the role WHO plays in emergencies.

With 130 million people in need of humanitarian assistance worldwide and health emergencies at an all-time high, the World Health Organization (WHO) works with partners to support countries facing emergencies such as disease outbreaks, natural or man-made disasters or conflicts. This webcast interviews experts about the health response during emergencies. The show overviews WHO’s new Health Emergency Programme, the international humanitarian laws that govern during conflicts, the status of current outbreaks and the mental and psychosocial support available for the populations affected. Health in emergencies was one of three subjects covered during this year’s World Health +SocialGood - a livestreamed show broadcast live during the 69th World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland, May 24-26, 2016. Produced in collaboration by WHO and the UN Foundation, this year’s World Health +SocialGood provides a behind-the-scenes look into three key issues: antimicrobial resistance, sustainable development goals and emergencies. All three shows are available on WHO's Youtube channel.

In March 2014, the Ministry of Health of Guinea notified the World Health Organization of an Ebola virus disease outbreak in the south-eastern part of the country. This video was produced in April 2014. The virus rapidly spread to the capital, Conakry, as well as to neighbouring countries, such as Liberia. This is the first Ebola outbreak in West Africa. WHO, along with partners in the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network (GOARN) and other international organizations, responded to requests from countries and deployed doctors and nurses, laboratory technicians, epidemiologists, logisticians, and other support staff to Conakry and other affected locations.
