This document provides guidance to national and international stakeholders involved in the health sector during Post Disaster Needs Assessments (PDNA) processes and recovery planning. The guidance is based on applying an integrated approach when undertaking the PDNA process. An integrated approach involves taking the standard damage and loss assessment methodology and including a recovery strategy that puts special emphasis on the human condition. Updates and additional tools for PDNAs and guidance for recovery planning in the health sector can be found on the websites of the following organisations: International Recovery Platform; Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO); United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC); World Bank Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR); and World Health Organisation (WHO).
