It aims to inspire and equip nurses and other health professionals to help people in disaster-affected areas and contribute to community resilience.The last decade (2005-2015) has been characterized by a number of overwhelming natural disasters – tropical storms, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis; and threats of emerging infectious diseases – SARS, MERSCoV and Ebola around the world. Countries from the Asia Pacific region, such as Australia, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, India, Japan, Nepal, Philippines, Solomon Islands, South Korea, Thailand and Vanuatu, have borne the brunt of the devastation caused by these catastrophic events. Nurses from these countries have stepped in providing emergency care in hospitals and in the field, addressing public health needs in evacuation centers, supporting epidemiologic surveillance and conducting health education, training and research, to help save lives and support communities build back better.
