Disaster recovery requires the continued provision of care to meet the needs of an affected community. Rather than simply restoring a community to its pre-disaster state, the disaster recovery period also affords the opportunity to build a healthier and more resilient community. The roles of the healthcare and public health sectors in disaster recovery has only recently been prioritized, and there is still much to learn about how organizations and professionals engaged in healthcare and public health may best contribute to community disaster recovery. This webpage provides resources for healthcare and public health workers to more effectively plan for and engage in disaster recovery.
