Evidence Aid's July Newsletter

10 July, 2024

Hello everyone,

Evidence Aid's latest bulletin is now available here: https://evidenceaid.org/evidence-aid-bulletin-9-july-2024/

This month, we focus on a significant and frequently overlooked issue: the impact of natural disasters, particularly windstorms and earthquakes. These events are becoming increasingly common, intensified by climate change, and causing widespread devastation worldwide (1). Unfortunately, their growing intensity, prevalence, and lack of preparation (2) leave many countries and communities vulnerable to their destruction (3). The aftermath of these disasters is multifaceted (4) and more complex than at first glance (5), requiring preparation, commitment and support from various groups to help deal with the fallout. To better understand this complexity, this month’s bulletin provides insights into the various types of support required during disasters. Topics include sexual and reproductive health, child abuse during natural hazards, and the loss of health aids and medications during emergencies.
