International Disaster Relief Task Focus Team (TFT)
CIPHI members took a survey in late 2016 to determine the level of interest in responding to international disaster relief. The survey report confirms that a process is needed to connect applicable NGOs with Environmental Public Health Professionals. Click here?for a copy of the entire report to download.
Page 2?of the report?shows the summary of the results from the 313 respondents in the Disaster Relief survey.? It is encouraging that the number of respondents was higher than anticipated. There was an opportunity to make comments with each question. Page 3 of the report?shows some of the comments/concerns and the answers/clarification related to the comments.
Members for the Task Focus Team needed!
One of the first tasks is to establish a Task Focus Team (TFT) to coordinate completion of the objectives in order to connect with NGOs. To help out with completing the objectives click here for access to the TFT Volunteer application form to work with the Task Focus Team.
