NOTE: This Trending Topic was updated in January 2020- the newest items are at the top of the list below.
This Trending Topic was originally published In April and May of 2015, just after Nepal was struck by two devastating earthquakes. Emergency workers from around the globe, including those trained in health communication, rushed to the scene to assist with disaster relief and recovery efforts.
Since that time, numerous emergency scenarios seem to have become more commonplace – natural disasters, refugee crises, and dangerous outbreaks of disease. To that end the Compass has updated its “SBC in Emergency Situations” page to include some newer materials.
We welcome your help in adding to this useful collection of resources – please feel free to upload your own organization’s materials here, and we thank you in advance.
