Abstract A Conceptual Framework upon which the study of disasters can be organized is essential for understanding the epidemiology of disasters, as well as the interventions/responses undertaken. Application of the structure provided by the Conceptual Framework should facilitate the development of the science of Disaster Health. This Framework is based on deconstructions of the commonly used Disaster Management Cycle. The Conceptual Framework incorporates the steps that occur as a hazard… 

Research and Evaluations of the Health Aspects of Disasters, Part V: Epidemiological Disaster Research

The findings from such studies should suggest interventions that could augment the absorbing, buffering, or/and response capacities to lessen the probability of similar damages occurring from the next event.

Research and Evaluations of the Health Aspects of Disasters, Part I: An Overview

A Disaster Logic Model (DLM) and a set of five Frameworks have been developed to structure the information and research of the health aspects of disasters, providing a standardized format for studying and comparing the epidemiology of disasters.

Research and Evaluations of the Health Aspects of Disasters, Part III: Framework for the Temporal Phases of Disasters

The use of the Temporal Framework in studying and reporting disasters allows comparisons to be made between similar phases of different disasters, regardless of the hazard involved and/or the community impacted.

Research and Evaluations of the Health Aspects of Disasters, Part VII: The Relief/Recovery Framework

The Relief/Recovery Framework provides the structure needed to systematically study the processes involved in providing relief or recovery interventions that result in a new LOF for a given Societal System and/or its component functions.

Research and Evaluations of the Health Aspects of Disasters, Part IX: Risk-Reduction Framework

A Risk-Reduction Framework, based on the Disaster Logic Model, details the processes involved in hazard mitigation and/or capacity-building interventions to augment the resilience of a community or to decrease the risk that a secondary event will develop.

Research and Evaluations of the Health Aspects of Disasters, Part VIII: Risk, Risk Reduction, Risk Management, and Capacity Building

Risk-reduction measures are interventions that can be implemented to decrease the risk that a hazard will manifest as an event; decrease the amounts of structural and functional damages that will result from the event; and/or increase the ability to cope with the damage and respond to the needs that result from an event.

Disaster Metrics: A Comprehensive Framework for Disaster Evaluation Typologies

The proposed Comprehensive Framework for Disaster Evaluation Typologies outlines the different typologies of disaster evaluations that were identified in this study and brings them together into a single framework that has relevance at an international level and is expected to benefit the disaster, humanitarian, and development sectors.

Categorization and Analysis of Disaster Health Publications: An Inventory

The evidence base for HADs is far from robust and is disorganized, making the development of scientific evidence on which to base best practices difficult, and a stronger evidence base is needed to develop the science associated with the H ADs.

Disaster E-Health Framework for Community Resilience

The project to develop a disaster e-health framework that can inform national disaster and health strategies and its extension to embrace community resilience that strengthens preparedness, safeguards life during the disaster phase, and assists long-term recovery to preserve the health and basic values of citizens are described.

Monitoring and evaluation of disaster response efforts undertaken by local health departments: a rapid realist review

A rapid realist review (RRR) to examine why M&E efforts undertaken by local health departments do not always result in improved disaster response efforts and develops a theoretical framework that draws on the quality improvement literature to ‘frame’ the steps in the M &E cycle.

The Definition of Good

The Definition of Good By Dr. A. C. Ewing offers stout resistance to subjectivism and to naturalism in ethics, because these tanets erode, as it were, any rational basis, and therefore render the superstructure of moral obligation insecure.

Definition of community

DEFINITION OF COMMUNITY A "community" is group of people sharing a common interest and set of values. The members of a community often view the world through a distinct perspective that dictates how
