  • What is HOPE? Hospital Preparedness for Emergencies
    • HOPE is a Training Course, capacity building and technical assistance program for medical facility staff and healthcare personnel, both medical and non medical, to prepare healthcare facilities to respond effectively to community emergencies involving large numbers of casualties.
    • The course enables staff to develop disaster preparedness plans to respond, based on best-practice guidelines. Instructors and practitioners are trained with HOPE and expert assistance is provided on enhancing medical facility preparedness.
    • HOPE is a component of Program for Enhancement of Emergency Response (PEER) - a regional program initiated by USAID/OFDA in 1998. The goal is to enhance local and regional disaster preparedness and response capacities of vulnerable countries in Asia. Another component is Community Action for Disaster Response (CADRE). Both are managed by the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center, (ADPC) Bangkok, Thailand. www.adpc.net/peer
