Nepal is a disaster-prone country and faces various types of natural and man-made disasters, the most frequent natural disasters being floods and landslides. Nepal also lies in an earthquake-prone zone and the 2015 earthquake was a devastating one. All these disasters not only cause deaths and casualties, but also displace people and cause infrastructural damage. Keeping this in mind, this Integrated Training Package on Emergency Preparedness and Response for Rapid Response Team (RRT) was drafted to enhance the emergency response capacity of RRT members during any kind of disaster, crisis or emergency. This publication was prepared by the Epidemiology & Disease Control Division (EDCD) with technical and financial support from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and Nepal Red Cross Society (NRCS).
