Water borne diseases are major killers in disasters and complex emergencies where large populations are displaced and/or moving or where local water infrastructure has been destroyed by an earthquake, cyclone or bombing. They can turn a disaster into a catastrophe.

Disaster management, mitigation and preparedness are all part of disaster risk reduction. A country’s ranking on the World Risk Index is determined not just by its vulnerability to natural hazards but also by its capacity to cope. Red Australia is committed to increasing this capacity in disaster prone countries in the Indo-Pacific. We are supporting efforts to increase the localisation of humanitarian aid through our commitment to building the capacity of local responders to prevent water-borne diseases.

As part of our commitment, we are pleased to offer several fee-waived places on our upcoming internationally recognised humanitarian training course - Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in Emergencies. When local emergency response workers understand how to apply basic Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) strategies, more lives can be saved. This course introduces participants to the concepts of public health engineering and environmental health in emergencies, standard equipment used in the field and the basics of WASH cluster coordination as well as the international SPHERE standards that apply.
