Beyond Ebola: from dignified response to dignified recovery

IFRC, 14 January 2016
800kb

Ebola is no stranger to Africa but, for the past year and a half, a West African epidemic has forced us all to rethink how we should respond to health emergencies. Unless the lessons learned in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are put into universal practice, the virus disease will return – and a repetition does not bear thinking about.

IFRC Annual Report 2014

IFRC, 5 January 2016
2.5MB

2014 was a challenging year for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and for the wider humanitarian community. In Syria, South Sudan and the Central African Republic, the year ended as it started with millions of people displaced and affected by conflicts that show no sign of coming to an end. In each of these three crises, the effects have spread well beyond national borders, impacting surrounding countries and placing huge strain on already stretched social services.

These situations challenge us to work more effectively as the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, to find new ways of coordinating better as the old lines between “conflict”, “disaster” and “development” are blurred. They force us to reflect on and adapt our approach to humanitarian response. When people have been displaced for months, or even years, they need more than short-term aid. They need support to rebuild their lives, to find employment and education opportunities, and to recover their dignity

Nuclear and Radiological Emergency Guidelines

IFRC, 15 September 2015
5MB

Some may ask, given the wide and growing number of natural and man-made crises that we are preparing for and responding to, why the Red Cross Red Crescent is devoting time and resources to preparing for nuclear emergencies, events that are historically rare.

The Fukushima crisis was a painful reminder of how devastating nuclear acci- dents can be, and of how ill-equipped we, as a global community, are to respond. It would be easy, even comforting, to write off this experience as unique, and unlikely to ever happen again.

However our experience in disaster management – experience that goes back to the founding of our Federation in 1919– has taught us to appreciate the inev- itability of accidents and emergencies, and the importance of planning and preparing for the unexpected and the impossible.
