Public health and natural disasters

Disaster management is based upon partnerships between government, non-government organisations (NGOs), commerce and industry sectors and the local community and recognise that each level needs to work collaboratively to ensure the effective coordination of planning, services, information and resources necessary for comprehensive disaster management.

The RACGP has provided a range information and factsheets to assist GPs and patients to prepare for and recover from disaster situations.
