Historic support for WHO campaign for safe hospitals!

May 24, 2011

Today the World Health Assembly passed a resolution on strengthening national health emergency, disaster management capacities and the resilience of health systems.   A big congratulation to all partners who have been working on this, particularly WHO’s South-East Asia emergency response team!

The resolution has been one of the objectives of the safe hospitals campaign we designed for WHO. Another objective is to engage 100,000 people in this issue, we’re hence very pleased that 220,400 people have so far reacted for safe hospitals through the campaign’s Facebook ‘fast reaction’ application.   This is to our knowledge the most successful WHO awareness raising campaign to date.   Thank you also to our partner Taivas!!  A happy day.
