This Guidance Note (the Note) for Post- Disaster Health Sector Recovery is intended to provide action-oriented guidance to local and central government health sector officials who face post-disaster challenges related to health sector recovery. It lays out the policy, planning, financial, and implementation decisions and activities that go into developing and putting into effect a Health Sector Recovery Plan. Additionally, common pitfalls are outlined as well as ways to overcome them. While recovery is not a linear process, the Note is structured around three phases: ■ Immediate, or initial recovery efforts as the sector transitions from response to recovery. ■ Short-term, or recovery planning and initial implementation. ■Medium-term reconstruction efforts.
