About Us 关于我们

Asia is the most densely populated continent with the highest number of natural disasters. The impact of disaster upon human population is exacerbated by significant resource disparity, the lack of research as well as technical knowledge transfer in the field of disaster risk management.

In April 2011, The Jockey Club School of Public Health and Primary Care received a HKD$7 million donation to establish a centre to carry out research, training, and community knowledge transfer in the area of disaster and humanitarian response in Asia Pacific. A 3-year collaboration was formed between the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and Oxford University with the start up fund – the Collaborating Centre for Oxford University and CUHK for Disaster and Medical Humanitarian Response (CCOUC). Drawing on the extensive technical expertise and collaborative networks of its supporting institutions, CCOUC focuses on research, education, and services for disaster preparedness, relief, and response in the Greater China and Asia Pacific region.

亚洲是全球人口最密集的地区,同时是全球受天灾人祸影响最大的地区。由于资源分配不均,同时缺乏灾害风险管理研究和技术转移的工作,因而加深了灾害对该区人口所带来的不利影响。

香港中文大学赛马会公共卫生及基层医疗学院获捐助港币七百万元,于2011年4月正式成立CCOUC灾害与人道救援研究所,由香港中文大学及牛津大学合作运行三年。本研究所充分利用各方的专业技术合作网络,致力于大中华及亚太地区灾害防备、救援和应对的研究。
