  • 2. BACKGROUND Typhoon Haiyan (known in the Philippines as Typhoon Yolanda) is the second-deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, killing at least 4,011 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.

  • 16. HEALTH - NEEDS HEALTH • Injury management is urgently required. The Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center is the only operational hospital in Tacloban City. • Health infrastructures are severely damaged in the worst affected areas and medical supplies are low. • According to NDRRMC 12,501 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. The need for essential and emergency health services and treatment for chronic conditions is increasing in affected areas, while the need for acute trauma care is decreasing. • Providing health services to municipalities outside Tacloban (including elsewhere in Leyte province) and addressing intermediate and long-term public health needs are critical. According to reports, barangay-level health centers are largely not functioning. Precise figures are not currently available. 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. NEEDS: • 115 (mainly hospitals) of 2,495 health facilities in the affected area have been assessed. Of the 115 assessed, 47 are not functioning (41 percent). • • • In the hardest hit areas, one third of the children suffer from malnutrition while only 20 percent have been fully immunized against measles, leaving them particularly vulnerable to the deadly disease. • Over 390,000 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. • Most drugstores have been looted and medicines, including family planning supplies, are urgently required, particularly in Tacloban City. • 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. • Health service delivery points, including for emergency obstetric and neonatal care, are compromised by the sustained damage.

  • 17. HEALTH - RESPONSE HEALTH • 87 medical teams (43 foreign and 44 national) are deployed throughout the affected areas and are managing mass casualties. • A mass vaccination campaign for measles, Vitamin A and polio is starting this week. • Health facility damage is being mapped. • Doctors and nurses in Tacloban City have mobilized to conduct reproductive health and medical missions. • SPEED, an emergency disease surveillance system, has been activated. • A campaign for mass vaccination against measles and polio is being organized and will begin this week in Tacloban. • 62 Government, private and foreign medical teams have been deployed across affected municipalities in Regions VI, VII and VIII. • In Roxas City, a cold chain has been established. OCHA SITREP 10– 19 NOV 2013 OCHA SITREP 10– 17 NOV 2013 OCHA SITREP 10– 16 NOV 2013 • The Government and partners have provided essential medicines and tents to operational health facilities, but more supplies and equipment are needed. • 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.

  • 18. HEALTH – GAPS & CONSTRAINTS HEALTH GAPS & CONSTRAINTS: • 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. • Disease surveillance is patchy due to disrupted communication networks. • • People are traumatized and lack psycho-social support Medical teams require fuel, water purification and safe accommodation. • There is a high risk of acute respiratory infections, diarrhea, leptospirosis, measles, cholera and typhoid. Establishing temporary points for delivery of health services is critical as infrastructure is damaged and people do not have access to medical care. • • The lack of access to safe water, overcrowding and displacement pose serious risk of outbreaks of communicable diseases. Disease surveillance needs to be strengthened. • Temporary health facilities, generators, medication, surgical supplies, cold storage and WASH facilities are urgently required. Transportation of medical supplies to the affected areas is currently one of the biggest constraints. • • The breakdown in communication facilities in many affected areas has hampered reporting and planning for reproductive health activities. Bethany hospital in Tacloban is half completely destroyed and half damaged to the point of being unusable. This handwritten sign was posted asking for any volunteer doctor to lend a hand.

  • 21. RED CROSS AND RED CRESCENT ACTION OPERATIONS • IFRC has deployed a Disaster Law expert to provide advice as needed to PRC and other partners to support humanitarian diplomacy. • As part of the cash working group, the IFRC recovery coordinator for Asia Pacific is deploying to Manila to move the cash coordination agenda forward. • The National Society has set up 20 welfare desks to assist with restoring family links and provide psychosocial support. LOGISTICS •More than 85 metric tonnes (93 tons) of relief materials are being flown from IFRC’s logistic hub in Kuala Lumpur to devastated areas. • The IFRC global logistics service has reserved 25,000 jerry cans and 100,000 tarpaulins with framework agreement suppliers. An additional 24,000 tarpaulins are booked for sea freight. • An IT/Telecoms ERU has deployed to Cebu and is setting up access in the operations warehouse. • A UK Red Cross RAF-C-130 aircraft has arrived in Cebu, which is capable of flying into smaller airfields, dealing with shorter runways, and dealing with unpredictable conditions. This should allow support to reach otherwise inaccessible areas. SHELTER CLUSTER • The shelter cluster has full time capacity dedicated to cluster coordination in Manila, Roxas, Tacloban and Bohol.

  • 24. NUTRITION NEED: • Delay in access to adequate nutrition increases likelihood of deterioration of health and increases likelihood of disease outbreaks of disease. • The cluster estimates that approximately that 1.5 million of the 4.9 million affected children are under five years and are at risk for Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) if appropriate nutrition solutions are not available to them. An estimated 800,000 pregnant and lactating women will also require nutrition interventions. • Priority interventions needed include infant and young child feeding (IYCF), Infant formula monitoring, micronutrient supplementation, management of acute malnutrition, and health and nutrition education. • Disruption to maternal care and child feeding practices and damage to WASH and health facilities place children and women at a high risk of malnutrition, especially in high poverty areas. • Pre-disaster data shows that the affected regions have high rates of malnutrition (5 percent to 9 percent global acute malnutrition (wasting), 21 percent to 26 percent underweight and 38 percent to 42 percent stunting). PRIORITIES (URGENT): • Conduct rapid nutrition assessments and screening for detection, referral, and follow-up of girls, boys and women supported by local women's groups, religious leaders, and child protections councils; • Establish and support Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) in Emergencies, community peer counseling activities with women's groups, and other trained community counselors; • Establish community-based therapeutic feeding centers for girls and boys with severe acute malnutrition integrated in to local health systems; • Provide nutrition supplies for therapeutic feeding, including micronutrient supplements and equipment; • Continue capacity-building on management of acute malnutrition and nutrition in emergencies targeting local health staff; • Provide coordination and technical support to the Nutrition Cluster; • Conduct standardized nutrition surveys for updated age- and genderdisaggregated nutritional status data.
