India can have its own disaster response model to be emulated: Mandaviya

NEW DELHI:  India can have its own disaster response strategy which can be emulated by other countries, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said on Tuesday because it is a large country with diverse terrains, said Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on Tuesday.

Dr Mandaviya said, India's model may take inspiration from the finest international practises and go beyond Standard Operating Procedures (SoPs) to become adaptable and agile to deal with local needs.

Speaking at a consultative workshop on the "National Emergency Medical Team, India," he said, "While it is important to learn from global best practises and follow SOPs, let us learn from the national examples of emergency and disaster response in the past few decades and enrich our model from learning and insights from these."

The national architecture of emergency response and management has to incorporate multi-sectoral and multi-layered learning into its training and capacity building modules, according to this statement. said Mandaviya.
The two-day workshop is meant to bring together all NEMT initiative stakeholders to discuss the initiative's policy, strategy, roles, and responsibilities as well as to prepare a roadmap for integrating the needs of the nation for disaster preparedness with the needs of the health system in such situations, according to a statement. One of the top priorities on the G20 Health Track agenda is the prevention of health emergencies, preparation for them, and responses. This meeting follows the G20 Health Working Group conference, which was held from August 18 to 20 in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.
Rajesh Bhushan, the union health secretary, emphasised the necessity of coordinating efforts across the NDMA, NDRF, state agencies, emergency care providers, trauma centres, etc. in order to ensure agility, rapid reaction, and effectiveness. In reaction to disasters and public health emergencies, the National Emergency Medical Team (NEMT) initiative seeks to modernise the current responsive style of healthcare manpower deployment. 

EMT is formulated as a group of healthcare professionals offering direct clinical care to people affected by outbreaks and emergencies, a health ministry statement said.

The fundamental skills needed to anticipate and lessen the effects of any public health crises are consistent across any emergency or disaster. The statement said that in order for the deployed teams to be effective, they must be formally trained and equipped in terms of clinical expertise as well as on-field coordination with other stakeholders.
