  • 2. BACKGROUND Typhoon Haiyan (known in the Philippines as Typhoon Yolanda) is the second-deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, killing at least 5,235 people The thirtieth named storm of the 2013 Pacific typhoon season, Haiyan originated from an area of low pressure several hundred kilometers eastsoutheast of Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia on 2 November. Tracking generally westward, environmental conditions favored tropical cyclogenesis and the system developed into a tropical depression the following day. After becoming a tropical storm and attaining the name Haiyan at 0000 UTC on 4 November, the system began a period of rapid intensification that brought it to typhoon intensity by 1800 UTC on November 5. AFFECTED AREA: Regions VIII (Eastern Visayas), VI (Western Visayas) and VII (Central Visayas) are hardest hit, according to current information. Regions IV-A (CALABARZON), IV-B (MIMAROPA), V (Bicol), X (Northern Mindanao), XI (Davao) and XIII (Caraga) were also affected. Tacloban City, Leyte province, with a population of over 200,000 people, has been devastated, with most houses destroyed. An aerial survey revealed almost total destruction in the coastal areas of Leyte province. AFFECTED POPULATION: 2,145,359 families (9,996,065 persons) in nine regions—over 10 percent of the country’s population—are affected By 6 November, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) assessed the system as a Category 5-equivalent super typhoon on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale; the storm passed over the island of Kayangel in Palau shortly after attaining this strength. it continued to intensify; at 1200 UTC on 7 November the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) upgraded the storm's maximum ten-minute sustained winds to 235 km/h (145 mph), the highest in relation to the cyclone. At 1800 UTC, the JTWC estimated the system's one-minute sustained winds to 315 km/h (195 mph), unofficially making Haiyan the fourth most intense tropical cyclone ever observed. On the morning of 8 November, category 5 Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda) made a direct hit on the Philippines, a densely populated country of 92 million people, devastating areas in 36 provinces. The eye of the cyclone made its first landfall in the Philippines at Guiuan, Eastern Samar, without any change in intensity.

  • 8. CURRENT SITUATION – DAMAGED HOUSES
  • 9. CURRENT ASSESSMENT – PUBLIC HEALTH AND MEDICAL Communities are in need of better shelter, nutrition and clean water to prevent a further spread of acute respiratory infections in the coming months. As foreign medical teams that have focused on trauma injuries begin to leave the country, gaps will occur for basic health care. Operational health facilities are reportedly overstretched, and there is still overall poor coverage of services in particular along the Eastern coast of Samar and Cebu. Cases of acute malnutrition continue to rise. Tacloban: 9 severe and 19 moderate; Eastern Visayas Region: 7 moderate and 9 severe VACCINATION CAMPAIGN: On November 22, the vaccination campaign was officially launched. The Department of Health has requested support for their Vaccination program, covering measles, tetanus and polio in children, TB (BCG) and Hepatitis B for newborns, and for influenza and pneumococcal within the elderly. The lack of consistent power is affecting the rapid scale up of these processes as it hinders establishment of sufficient cold chain capacity. MATERNAL HEALTH: An estimated 389,500 pregnant and lactating women need specialized services for prenatal, postnatal, child health, health promotion and family planning. Daily, an estimated 865 births take place in the affected communities. About 129 of these will have potentially lifethreatening complications HEARS CURRENT SITUATION NOV 25, 2013 HEARS CURRENT SITUATION NOV 24, 2013 HEARS CURRENT SITUATION NOV 23, 2013 DISEASE/ INJURY • Two leptospirosis deaths have been verified: A 22-year-old male from Tacloban City and a 58-year-old male from Palo, Leyte • DOH confirms that there have been a number of tetanus cases. Those verified were all males whose ages ranged from 19 to 60 years. One came from Tolosa, Leyte and the rest from Tacloban. All of them are alive. A team of medical experts from the San Lazaro Hospital in Manila was deployed to Tacloban to attend to typhoon victims who contracted tetanus, • Top health conditions reported are acute respiratory infections, injuries and wounds, fever, diarrhea, hypertension, asthma and insomnia, as well as chronic conditions. • The risk of outbreaks of diarrheal diseases and measles is substantial given the lack of safe water and sanitation, displacement and overcrowding, and sub-optimal vaccination coverage. At a meeting on Friday evening, 22 NOV 2013, where representatives of several dozen domestic and foreign medical groups described the biggest single public health problem to emerge since the typhoon is acute respiratory infections, including pneumonia which have been attributed to lack of shelter, poor weather, and lack of clothing (NYT) WHO - #2 HEARS CURRENT SITUATION NOV 22, 2013 HEARS CURRENT SITUATION NOV 21, 2013 HEARS CURRENT SITUATION NOV 20, 2013
  • 10. CURRENT ASSESSMENT – PUBLIC HEALTH AND MEDICAL Medical consults conducted in selected evacuation centers (Astrodome, Dulag, EVRMC, Phil.

Influenza-like Illness (92), acute gastroenteritis (78), upper respiratory tract infection (69) and fever (24) are highest among children. Tanauan Evacuation Center appears to be the evacuation center with the highest number of cases. SURVEILLANCE: The disease surveillance system in the affected areas has been disrupted by the typhoon as many of the reporting sites have ben destroyed. For the period November 13-21, 2013, Eastern Visayas Medical Center reported the following services: 1,524 ER consultations, 1,795 OPD consultations and 1,352 total in- patient census and 350 operations. The top 5 leading causes of consultation are: Systems for disease monitoring have been activated, but are hampered: • Damaged communications infrastructure, introducing latency in reporting • A shortage of trained staff • Poor internet connections 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Trauma/typhoon related injuries Respiratory tract infection Acute gastro enteritis Hypertension Skin disease.

  • 12. HIGHLIGHT BRIEF-PNEUMONIA DESCRIPTION TREATMENT Pneumonia is an inflammatory condition that develops deep in the lung and is usually caused by infection from viruses or bacteria. It is spread through tiny particles of air coughed or exhaled by infected persons. People can become ill with pneumonia by coming in contact with infected individuals or with organisms in the air or on contaminated surfaces. Despite advancements in treatment, pneumonia remains a leading cause of death worldwide. • Oral or intravenous antibiotics are the treatment of choice. • Breathing support (oxygen masks, ventilation, etc.) may be needed for those showing signs that they are not getting enough oxygen in the blood (difficulty breathing, rapid breathing, blue discoloration of the lips or fingertips, etc.). RISK FACTORS People most at risk for developing pneumonia are the very young, the very old, and those with certain chronic conditions such as lung disease or immune disorders such as HIV. Additional risk factors that put a person at increased risk of pneumonia are poor nutrition, poor sanitation and hygiene practices, living in impoverished and/or overcrowded areas. CURRENT SITUTATION • At a meeting on Friday, 22 Nov 2013, representatives of several dozen domestic and foreign medical groups described the biggest single public health problem to emerge since the typhoon as acute respiratory infections, including pneumonia which have been attributed to lack of shelter, poor weather, and lack of clothing. RECOMMENDATIONS • SYMPTOMS The symptoms usually start 2-10 days after coming into contact with the causative organisms. Some of the common symptoms include: • Sudden onset • High fever • Shaking chills • Chest pain • Cough producing phlegm • Difficulty breathing CDC – Pneumococcal Disease American Family Physician – Pneumonia Doctors Without Borders Mayo Clinic • • Wash hands with antimicrobial soap and water or by using alcohol-based waterless gels. If hands have been in contact with mucus or other secretions, use soap and water only. Wear gloves and masks when dealing with people/patients with cough or other warning signs of respiratory (lung) illness. Change clothes if soiled with mucus or other secretions.
  • 13. HIGHLIGHT BRIEF- MALNUTRITION DESCRIPTION TREATMENT • Malnutrition is caused by inadequate or unbalanced nutrition. • Malnutrition is the largest single contributor to disease according to the UN’s Standing Committee on Nutrition (SCN). • Inhibits physical and mental development in children and can cause mental retardation if severe at an early age • Can cause women to give birth to low birth-weight babies • Increase quality and quantity of food intake • Nutrient supplementation • People who cannot or will not eat may be fed intravenously or by a tube inserted directly into the gastrointestinal tract RISK FACTORS • Illness or disease is often a factor of malnutrition either as a result or a contributing cause • Poor food choice, lack of food availability, or lack of nutritional food (even if people get enough to eat, can cause malnourishment if the food does not provide the proper nutrients) • Injuries to the face or nerve damage to the muscles that control chewing and/or swallowing CURRENT SITUTATION • The first cases of acute malnutrition have been diagnosed. • Eastern Visayas region: 16 cases (7 moderate and 9 severe) of acute malnutrition • Cases also reported from the hospital at Tacloban airport RECOMMENDATIONS • Eat a well-balanced diet with adequate caloric intake to balance the number of calories burned with the number of calories eaten each day. • Take vitamins daily to supplement diet SYMPTOMS • Length of time to develop malnutrition depends on the severity of the lack of nutrients • There are a wide range of symptoms depending on the vitamin or mineral that is deficient: • Weight loss • Thin or bloated body • Pale, thick, and dry skin • Bruises • Rashes • Thin hair that is tightly curled and pulls out easily • Achy joints • Gums bleed easily • Swollen or shriveled and cracked tongue WORLD FOOD PROGRAMME AMERICAN FAMILY PHYSICIAN • Night blindness JOHNS HOPKINS CHILDREN’S CENTER PHILIPPINES NEWS AGENCY • Increased sensitivity to light and glare Prior to the typhoon malnutrition was present in the Philippines. The conditions since the storm are only likely to worsen the situation.
  • 14. HIGHLIGHT BRIEF- MEASLES DESCRIPTION TREATMENT • A respiratory disease caused by the measles virus • Highly contagious – 90% of people without immunity (those never vaccinated) sharing a living space with an infected person will develop the disease • Spread via respiration by coming in contact with fluids from an infected person’s nose and mouth either directly or through droplets in the air • Complications are common and usually more severe in adults • Most people with uncomplicated measles will recover without specific treatment • Rest and supportive care (e.g. fluids) • Hospitalization for those with severe complications • examples include pneumonia, ear infection, encephalitis (inflammation of the brain), corneal ulcerations, and miscarriage or premature delivery in pregnant women RISK FACTORS • Not getting vaccinated • Travel to or contact with someone who has travelled to developing countries where measles is common (endemic), vaccinations are limited, and/or malnutrition is common • Sharing the same living space with an infected person SYMPTOMS Symptoms develop in unvaccinated people 9 to 12 days after coming in contact with an infected person. • Fever (up to 40C or 104F) • The 3 C’s of Measles: Cough, Coryza (term that describes inflammation in the upper respiratory tract [nasal cavities] that commonly occurs with a ‘cold’), and Conjunctivitis (red eyes) • Runny nose • Loss of appetite • Rash -- classic symptom of measles • • a generalized (covers the entire body), flat-to-slightly raised red rash (see photo to the right) appears several days after the fever starts CURRENT SITUATION • Much of the Philippines is not immunized against measles • Medical and public health authorities have been monitoring for potential outbreaks, but communications is still an issue RECOMMENDATIONS • Individuals who have not been vaccinated should: • • • • Confirm you have had the measles vaccine prior to travelling to any endemic area • • • not share close spaces or intimate contact with infected persons wear masks and gloves if contact with infected persons is unavoidable wash hands thoroughly with antimicrobial soap and hot water vaccination is the primary and most effective method of prevention most people in developed countries have been vaccinated Infected individuals should be placed in isolation (Photos of the classical measles rash) CDC - Measles Doctors Without Borders
  • 15. HIGHLIGHT BRIEF- LEPTOSPIROSIS DESCRIPTION Leptospirosis is a disease caused by a type of bacteria. It is spread by contacting the urine of an infected animal (usually rats). People get sick by touching, eating, or drinking water or soil that has been infected by animal urine. Outbreaks often happen with floodwaters after a hurricane. RISK FACTORS TREATMENT Leptospirosis is treated with antibiotics, usually doxycycline or penicillin for a course of one week. CURRENT SITUTATION Two leptospirosis deaths have been verified: A 22-year-old male from Tacloban City and a 58-year-old male from Palo, Leyte Drinking, eating, or touching contaminated water or soil. SYMPTOMS People usually start getting sick with a fever, chills, and vomiting 2 days to 4 weeks after the bacteria enters their body. Without treatment, people can be sick for a few days or sometimes more than 3 weeks. Some people recover after a few days but will later become sick again with life-threatening symptoms. Some of the common symptoms include: • High fever • Headache • Chills • Muscle aches • Vomiting • Jaundice (yellow skin and eyes) • Red eyes • Abdominal Pain • Diarrhea • Rash RECOMMENDATIONS • Aid workers should avoid consuming any unfiltered water. • Keep floodwater and soil off skin, especially, from the eyes, nose, mouth, or open wounds. • Anybody experiencing a combination of the listed symptoms should seek medical attention as soon as possible.

  • 24. HEALTH - NEEDS • NEEDS: • The need for treatment capacity for TB, acute respiratory infections, dog bites, and wounds related to debris clearing and reconstruction is increasing As of 19 November, 942 (mainly hospitals) of 2,495 health facilities in the affected area have been assessed; 104 are not functioning (11 per cent). However, village-level health facilities are also largely not functioning, creating a serious gap in health care. • Solar refrigerators and solar lamps are required for rural health units in areas still without power. • The need for emergency trauma care is decreasing, while the need for primary health care is increasing • In the hardest hit areas, one third of the children suffer from malnutrition while only 20 per cent have been fully immunized against measles, leaving them particularly vulnerable to the deadly disease. • An estimated 389,500 pregnant and lactating women need specialized services for pre-natal, post-natal and child health care, as well as health promotion and family planning services. Daily, an estimated 865 births take place in the affected communities. About 129 of these will have potentially life-threatening complications. Comprehensive data on pregnant and lactating women is needed to be able to address their needs • Injury management is urgently required. The Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center is the only operational hospital in Tacloban City. • According to preliminary reports, 25 health facilities in Region VIII are serving over 200 000 affected people. • According to NDRRMC 12,501people have been injured, with numbers expected to rise as more areas become accessible. • An oral polio vaccination campaign is necessary but is hampered by lack of cold chain capacity. • Most drugstores have been looted and medicines, including family planning supplies, are urgently required, particularly in Tacloban City. HEALTH • Repairs to health care facilities and basic services for patients – including food and water – are urgently needed. Immediate action is needed to provide a safe water supply at the Eastern Visayas Referral Medical Centre, the main hospital for the region. • Disease surveillance needs strengthening. Reports of chickenpox, tetanus and leptospirosis deaths have emerged. Partners report increased cases of gastroenteritis, acute respiratory infection, fever, rashes and diarrhoea, especially in children. • In Ormoc, partners confirm that the health situation is stable despite a few cases of upper respiratory infection in children under five. Health services have been fully restored, but drug supplies are running low. • • The Government has prioritized the restoration of primary and hospital health services, including the structural safety of hospitals, appropriate medical waste management and infection control. Basic and essential health care services must be expanded, including for routine surgeries (e.g. Caesarians).

  • 26. HEALTH – GAPS & CONSTRAINTS HEALTH GAPS & CONSTRAINTS: • Geographical coverage of health services needs to be expanded. • The lack of electricity is undermining cold chain operations. • Capacity is stretched due to the limited number of health facilities in operation. Overcrowding is increasing the risk of outbreaks of infectious waterborne diseases. • The following materials are needed to provide health services: Interagency Emergency Health Kits, Reproductive Health kits, Diarrhoeal Disease Kits and WASH supplies. Cholera kits should be kept on stand-by. • Transport costs and lack of fuel are hampering the health response. • A shortage of trained staff and poor internet connections are hampering the emergency disease surveillance system. • Basic and essential health care services, including routine surgical capacity (including for Caesarians), must expand. There is an immediate need for reproductive health kits across hardest hit areas. • The transport of patients to referral hospitals is still an issue due to the lack of ambulances and fuel. This is improving as roads are cleared. • The lack of access to safe water, overcrowding and displacement pose serious risk of outbreaks of communicable diseases. Disease surveillance needs to be strengthened. • Plans to fill gaps by the eventual departure of foreign medical teams are required. • Establishing temporary points for delivery of health services is critical as infrastructure is damaged and people do not have access to medical care. • Available vaccines and supplies for planned campaigns are estimated to be sufficient only for Eastern Visayas region. Volunteers are needed to administer vaccines in these campaigns. • Medical teams require fuel, water purification and safe accommodation. • The disease surveillance system is currently patchy due to a disrupted communications network.

Many are leaving through airports and seaports with minimal (if any) controls. This increases the risk of exposure to human trafficking. • Identification, documentation, tracing and reunification for unaccompanied and separated children is needed. The number of children displaced from Leyte and Samar Provinces arriving in Cebu Province is increasing. • UNFPA has developed a $110 million plan for national authorities and humanitarian partners to ensure that no woman dies giving birth and that each woman and girl is protected from violence.

In Eastern Samar Province, IDPs are living in overcrowded camps without separate areas for women and children. RESPONSE: • 36 unaccompanied and separated children have been identified. • Over 1,000 people have been registered at the Migration Outflow Desk in Tacloban City. • A response desk at Villamor Airbase, Pasay City (Manila), was established to monitor possible cases of trafficking and/or unaccompanied, separated, or missing children. • Women and Child Protection Units have been set up in Borongan, Balangkayan, Hernani, Llorente, Oras, Salcedo, and San Julian municipalities (Eastern Samar). • Two new child-friendly spaces have been established in Tacloban City. • Women and children protection desks have been set up in three evacuation centers in Tacloban City. • UNFPA supports the deployment of female police officer teams in 196 municipalities and safe haven reconstruction in 4 regions. • UNFPA will create safe women spaces in evacuation centers while strengthening interagency protection mechanisms in 700 villages and barangays.
