Emergency Preparedness and Response Resources for MCH Populations webinar
The CDC Division of Reproductive Health (DRH) has responded to disasters for more than a decade, from the Sept. 11 attacks to the Ebola Virus outbreak in West Africa. In the aftermath Hurricane Katrina, the need for literature and resources to address critical questions regarding the impact of disasters for women of reproductive age, pregnant, and postpartum women became evident. DRH collaborated with local, state, and federal partners to develop a wide array of tools to assess post-disaster reproductive health needs and respond to them. These tools apply to a variety of disasters including natural disasters, infectious disease outbreaks, and preparedness for an anthrax bioterrorism event. In partnership with the CDC DRH, AMCHP is hosting a webinar to highlight resources available for states to assist with disaster preparedness. The webinar Emergency Preparedness and Response Resources for MCH Populations, is scheduled for Tuesday, Jun. 16 at 2 p.m. EST. Click here to register.
