Guidelines for essential trauma care

Mock, C et al, Eds.: World Health Organization (WHO), (2004)


The Guidelines for essential trauma care seek to set achievable standards for trauma treatment services which could realistically be made available to almost every injured person in the world. They then seek to define the resources that would be necessary to assure such care. These include human resources (staffing and training) and physical resources (infrastructure, equipment and supplies).

Disaster risk management systems analysis: A guide book

Baas, Stephan; Ramasamy, Selvaraju; Dey de Pryck, Jenny et al., Eds.: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), (2008)


The guide book provides a set of tools and methods to assess existing structures and capacities of national, district and local institutions with responsibilities for Disaster Risk Management (DRM) in order to improve their effectiveness and the integration of DRM concerns into development planning, with particular reference to disaster-prone areas, vulnerable sectors and population groups.
The strategic use of the Guide is expected to enhance understanding of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats facing existing DRM institutional structures and their implications for on-going institutional change processes. It will also highlight the complex institutional linkages among various actors and sectors at different levels.
