• INFORM Risk Index: Health Conditions

    Understanding why and where humanitarian disasters are likely to occur is a fundamental step in saving lives and promoting sustainable development. The main focus of humanitarian organizations is people. And people with limited access to health care systems are among the most vulnerable people in a humanitarian crisis. As part of the Vulnerability dimension of the INFORM Risk Index (global risk assessment for humanitarian crises and disasters), the "Health Conditions" index captures the prevalence of the three pandemics of low- and middle- income countries (HIV-AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria) as well as people requiring interventions against neglected tropical diseases. The risk score ranges from 0-10, where 10 is the highest risk.
