Estimated 3.2 million Burmese potentially affected by cyclone
Date:5/14/2008

w, the risk of disease outbreaks in Burma is especially highmuch more so than weve typically seen with tropical cyclones in past decadesbecause the humanitarian assistance so far has been delayed and woefully inadequate in scale, said Chris Beyrer, MD, MPH, director of the Center for Public Health and Human Rights. The military regime continues to rebuff offers of assistance from the international community more than a week after the storm, and they continue to restrict visas, limit international observers, and insist upon relying solely on its own response, which by all accounts, is markedly inadequate. Beyrer added that international guidelines on human rights and natural disasters cite the right of all affected populations to evacuation and other lifesaving measures, protection against negative impacts of natural hazards, and access to adequate food, water, shelter, sanitation and health services.

In addition to estimating the population vulnerability, the Bloomberg School is working with its partners based in the region to provide assistance to the Burmese people. Eight, five-person relief teams are working in Rangoon, Burmas largest city, and in the countrys delta region. These teams, which are trained by Hopkins personnel in rapid assessment and response, are assisting with water purification and the distribution of food, clothing, medicines and other essentials.
