    2. 2. BACKGROUND Typhoon Haiyan (known in the Philippines as Typhoon Yolanda) is the seconddeadliest Philippine typhoon on record, killing at least 2,344 people.[1] The thirtieth named storm of the 2013 Pacific typhoon season, Haiyan originated from an area of low pressure several hundred kilometers east-southeast 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. 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. Many cities and towns experienced widespread destruction, with as much as 90 per cent of housing destroyed in some areas. Roads are blocked, and airports and seaports impaired; heavy ships have been thrown inland. Water supply and power are cut; much of the food stocks and other goods are destroyed; many health facilities are not functioning and medical supplies are quickly being exhausted. SOURCE: TYPHOON HAIYAN – WIKIPEDIA PHILIPPINES: TYPHOON ACTION PLAN – NOVEMBER 2013 The cyclone caused devastation in the Philippines, particularly on Samar Island and Leyte. 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: An estimated 11.3 million people in nine regions—over 10 per cent of the country’s population—are affected. At least 673,042 people are displaced by the typhoon (55 per cent are in evacuation centers, the rest in host communities or makeshift shelters). Thousands of people have been killed or are still missing. Tens of thousands suffering from injuries, with the number of confirmed casualties still rising as more areas become accessible. Pre-disaster poverty levels and malnutrition rates in Regions VI, VII and VIII were already higher than the national average.

Most homes are uninhabitable due to damage, and water and power have yet to be restored. • Much of the livelihood infrastructure (farm –to-market roads, fishing boat landing sites and field irrigation) has been destroyed or blocked with debris, requiring reconstruction. • A total of 71,733 hectares of agricultural land planted with rice (67,095 has), corn (2,384 has) and high value crops (2,254 has) were affected in regions IV-B, V, VI, VII, VIII and CARAGA (42,137 has with no chance of recovery and 29,596 has with a chance of recovery) • Estimated production loss: PhP2,321,091,763.00 ($53,278,819.30 USD) or 138,280 metric tons (304,855,240 lbs) • Rice crops were the hardest hit with region VIII ranking No. 1 (38,441 has) , followed by Region V (17,385 has) • Losses: rice (PhP2,221, 113,529 = $ 50,983,898.29 USD), corn (PhP48,512,572= $1,113,567.59 USD), high value crops (PhP51,445,662= $1,180,894.34 USD) • AGRICULTURE (CONTINUED) • Damages and losses to livestock, fisheries, irrigation facilities and infrastructure: PhP1,376,117,555.00 = $31,587,686.33 USD • Estimated cost of damages to agriculture: PhP3,697,209,318 = $84,866,505.64 USD • ROADS AND BRIDGES • 2 roads in Regions VI and VIII remain impassable. • The lack of access to affected areas due to blocked roads and damaged infrastructure, limiting assessment and response activities. • AIRPORTS: All airports are now open and operating except for Tacloban (turbo propeller planes only for commercial operations). • SEAPORTS: All seaports are operational FOOD: 2.5 million people are in need of food assistance, but nutrition supplies are inadequate and logistical constrains hamper delivery of food. WATER: Water systems are damaged and non-operational in many areas. In addition, some ground water supplies are contaminated. Some local government units in Capiz and Iloilo, and the Municipality of Barbaza, Antique still do not have water supplies. CHILDREN: A significant number of children were displaced. Over 20,000 schools and day care centers were affected. SECURITY: Security conditions across the Philippines are rapidly deteriorating. The critical need for food and water has led desperate inhabitants to pillage supplies from shops and supermarkets, notably in the town of Tacloban. Gender-based violence is a major concern. Note: The total extent of damage is unknown as assessments are still ongoing. Expect this information to change frequently as more information becomes available.

    7. 7. CURRENT SITUATION - HEALTH HEALTH • Several medical teams, both domestic and international, have been deployed to provide emergency and basic medical and surgical services to affected areas in Eastern Visayas, the hardest hit by typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). These teams are self-sufficient and will pose no burden to host communities. SUPPLIES: Several cargoes of medicines, supplies and equipment have now reached Tacloban via Cebu and Catbalogan, Samar. Hopefully these will reach those who need them especially that alternative routes of transport were made available and provided by partners like PAL and AIR21. DEPLOYMENTS • DOH has deployed more than a hundred doctors and nurses that are treating the injured and sick in Tacloban, Bantayan, Medelin – and more are positioned to take off and set-up satellite medical stations throughout Regions 6, 7, and 8. These teams have been accompanied by more than P25 million worth of essential medicines and supplies HOSPITALS: Hospital tents provided by international teams are being established in strategic areas to complement hospital services post-Yolanda as almost all health facilities sustained major structural damage. • WHO Representative to the Philippines announced that “selfsufficient medical teams from Australia, Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Japan, Norway, Russia and Spain are already in the Philippines and logistical arrangements are underway to ensure that they reach affected areas. There are offers for help from Spain, Israel, the United Kingdom and Singapore • Priority for deployment will be teams that can set up hospitals with capacity for surgery and are equipped with generators and supplies for their teams to last from 10-15 days. WHO is working closely with the Department of Health to facilitate positioning of these international teams in strategic areas to augment the local medical teams. OFFICIAL GAZETTE - 13 NOV 13 NDRRMC.GOV.PH COMMNUICATIONS: Communication remains a problem.

    9. 9. HEALTH HEALTH Preliminary reports indicate that health infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed in many areas, disrupting the delivery of essential health services. The regional hospital in Tacloban was hit by a storm surge and much of its medical equipment was washed away. An estimated 660,000 displaced people need essential health services. NEED • Health infrastructures are severely damaged in the worst affected areas and medical supplies are low. • According to NDRRMC, 3,853 people 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. • Emergency surveillance systems needs to be established. The population is at increased risk of tetanus as well as outbreaks of acute respiratory infections, measles, leptospirosis and typhoid fever • There is no delivery of routine health services in affected areas, as well as lack of medicine, surgical and general medical supplies. • Most drugstores have been looted and medicines, including family planning supplies, are urgently required, particularly in Tacloban City. • Health service delivery points, including for emergency obstetric and neonatal care, are compromised by the sustained damage. RESPONSE: • Staff is coordinating three medical teams in Tacloban and one in Medellin, which are delivering outpatient emergency care, pediatric and primary health care; 16 medical teams are en-route to affected areas. • A sub-national health cluster has been established in Cebu. • Emergency supplies were shipped to Tacloban including four emergency kits with medicines and supplies to cover basic health services for 120,000 people for one month, supplies to perform 400 surgical interventions and four diarrheal disease kits with medicines and supplies to treat 3,000 cases of acute diarrhea. • Reproductive health kits 6A and 6B (clinical delivery assistance) were sent to Guiuan, Eastern Samar to treat patients with obstetric complications. Additionally, a generator set, one refrigerator to store medicines, one delivery bed, midwifery kits and hygiene kits were sent. • Coordination is well under-way in Tacloban City and Eastern Samar Region. • First medical teams have arrived in Cebu. Others teams, currently in Manila, are preparing for their deployment. • Public health epidemiologists will be deployed for field disease surveillance and response activities. • Non-food items like medicines, hygiene kits and dignity kits are prepositioned with the Family Planning • Organization of the Philippines (FPOP) and ready for deployment.

    10. 10. HEALTH HEALTH GAPS & CONSTRAINTS: • Establishing temporary points for delivery of health services is critical as infrastructure is damaged and people do not have access to medical care. • Medical teams require fuel, water purification and safe accommodation. • The breakdown in communication facilities in many affected areas has hampered reporting and planning for reproductive health activities. • Temporary health facilities, generators, medication, surgical supplies, cold storage and WASH facilities are urgently required. • There is a high risk of acute respiratory infections, diarrhea, leptospirosis, measles, cholera and typhoid. • People are traumatized and lack psycho-social support PRIOITIES (URGENT): • According to the Assistant Secretary of the Department of Health, WASH facilities, measles vaccination campaigns and restoration of cold chain facilities are priorities. • Deliver care for those with injuries to prevent complications such as infection, tetanus, and disability. • Deliver essential medicines and medical supplies to affected populations. • Increase provision and access to essential health services (i.e. medical/surgical consultations, reproductive health, mental health, psycho-social support, health promotion, immunization). • Strengthen disease surveillance and outbreak control. • Strengthen referral system from community health facilities to higher levels of care. • Provide support to systematic immunization for vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks. • Establish temporary health facilities/ services and/or repair/rehabilitate damaged health facilities. • Provide support to information management and to the coordination of the health sector response.

Operations set up in Tanauan: three surgical teams and >30 parcels of medical supplies and self-contained surgical tent. The team also has a satellite phone, expect daily updates • The ROYAL AUSTRALIAN AIR FORCE landed at Cebu, delivering a portable field hospital that was soon sent on its way to Tacloban. • The ISRAELI DEFENSE FORCE (IDF) has been tasked with rapidly setting up a “multi-department medical facility” to provide medical care for casualties of the disaster in Tacloban. The facility will have children’s, women’s and ambulatory care departments, as well as a general admission department, and will be equipped with approximately 100 tons of humanitarian and medical supplies from Israel. • According to the PHILIPPINE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH (DOH), a total of 400 foreign medical experts are now in the country to help the victims of the super typhoon. He noted that of the group, 200 came from Israel while 31 are from Germany; 35 from Belgium; 25 from Japan; 34 from Australia and 45 from Norway. The medical teams, some of whom are expected to arrive in affected areas as early as Tuesday, are tons of supplies and equipment that could sustain operations for up to two weeks. Refuge: Newborn babies lie in cots inside a chapel which was turned into a makeshift hospital after Super Typhoon Haiyan battered the country (Reuters) • Aside from foreign contingents, the PHILIPPINE MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (PMA) is also set to send a group of almost 200 medical professionals on board a barge under its "Doctors on Boat" project. Dr. Leo Olarte, PMA president, said that their contingent is composed of at least 100 doctors with different specializations as well as other health workers. He said they are slated to arrive in Tacloban City on November 19 and will stay in the area to attend to injured and ill residents for one week. Aside from converting the barge with a 1,000-ton capacity into a "boat hospital," Olarte said they will also be sending out some of their members to do house-tohouse consultations.
    16. 16. FOOD FOOD Initial finding reveal he the majority of the effected population are food-insecure. Food, cooking supplies, and kitchens are extremely scarce. Most assets and structures, including markets have been destroyed. The continued lack of food will lead to further food insecurity, malnutrition and increase instability in the regions affected. NEEDS: About 2.5 million people are in need of food assistance.
