Emergency Health Risk Consultation at WHO
The World Health Organization (WHO) drafted a Health Emergency Risk Management Framework (HERMF) that illustrates guiding principles of emergency risk management for its member states. CCOUC director, Prof. Emily Chan, was invited to participate in the “Consultation on the Health Emergency Risk Management Framework and Improving Public Health Preparedness” (HERMF) organized by WHO in Geneva.
The three-day consultation was held from 21 to 23 November 2012, and attended by a range of experts from health and non-health sectors to review and discuss the purpose, content, and implementation of the HERMF. The consultation identified key components to be incorporated into an internet-based information and support system (an One-stop shop toolkit) for member states to strengthen emergency risk management capacities and competencies.
The consultation adjourned on Friday November 23rd, where participants reached a consensus on the essential components in emergency risk management and the scope of performance measures appropriate to assess risk management progress in member states. Moreover, the meeting clarified the roles and responsibilities of the range of stakeholders in the implementation of HERMF, and prioritized key elements to be incorporated into the internet-based toolkit for emergency risk management.
