Abstract [en]

Disaster medicine remains an underdeveloped specialty field requiring significant focus [6,12]. This paper recommends that professionalization of this specialty is a global health priority, benchmarking it according to emerging global health standards. This paper emphasis the importance of technological innovations and increased access to the internet, to ensure enhanced learning and a greater reach of essential information. Education and training initiatives in disaster medicine are emerging with greater frequency leading to a call for unified standards of practice and policy necessary to build the capacity of future health worker and other to be effective responders to humanitarian and disaster crises. These initiatives will contribute to increased resilience, and more robust and sustainable development at the community level contributing greatly to disaster risk reduction and management.
