Abstract:

In collaboration with the Public Health Agency of Canada and Help the Aged (UK), the World Health Organization commissioned case studies in 2006-2007 to examine how older persons fared in conflict-related and naturally caused emergencies in both developed and developing countries -- war, drought, heat wave, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunami, ice storm, wild fires and a nuclear power plant explosion. The report contributes real-life experiences to inform policy and practice makers about the needs and contributions that older people face during emergency and reconstruction phases.--Publisher's description.
