GHI Workshop: Acute Disaster Relief

Speaker: Dr. Karen Joughin

Dr. Karen Joughin was a member of the Queensland Health team sent to Banda Aceh, Indonesia three weeks after the Boxing Day Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004. This experience impressed on her the importance of organized and coordinated disaster relief work. She will share lessons learned through this experience, with specific focus on conducting needs assessments, working together with locals, and being culturally and politically cognizant.
