Emergency Response

The International Emergency and Refugee Health Branch (IERHB) responds to requests for technical assistance and support from partner organizations. IERHB's primary partners for emergency responses include The Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance OFDA, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees UNHCR, United Nations Children's Fund UNICEF, World Health Organization WHO, and many non governmental organizations (NGOs).

In collaboration with partner organizations,  we act as health coordinators for displaced populations, conduct emergency needs assessment and establish surveillance systems as well as plan public health programs.
