Incorporating Homeless Populations into Disaster Preparedness, Planning, and Response
Georgetown University, Washington, DC
Dates:
3/27/2013 8:00 AM 2:30 PM
People experiencing homelessness can be especially vulnerable to the adverse effects of disasters due to compounding factors such as chronic illness, substance use disorders, location instability, and extreme poverty. Homeless populations therefore often encounter obstacles in disaster preparedness, response, and recovery, which also present challenges for service providers, the public health community, emergency responders, and policy makers. This forum will bring together key researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to help establish priority next steps for research, programs, and policy within these three domains to more effectively serve homeless populations during and after disasters and public health emergencies.
