All disasters are associated with psychological trauma. The rates of mental health problems count to 57% in the population affected by disasters. Mental health disaster response principles are holistic and community-based with solid preventive aspects.
HTWB approach is rooted in 6-R: Readiness, Response, Relief, Rehabilitation, Recovery and Resilience.
PAKISTAN FLOOD RESPONSE
Since June 2022, unprecedented monsoon rains in Pakistan have caused devastating floods--the worst the country has seen in over a decade.
To support the increasingly dire medical situation in Pakistan, HTWB has partnered with local clinicians to develop a remote clinical educational curriculum as a component of the Pakistan Flood Response.
We aim to raise awareness of the devastating impact of these floods and equip the community with educational tools to recognize and care for the health of loved ones.
