The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (SFDRR) was adopted at the Third World Conference for Disaster Risk Reduction, 14-18 March 2015, Sendai, JAPAN. SFDRR aims at the substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets. To achieve this goal, several targets were set and indicators (to be negotiated) will be set soon to reduce disaster risk through integrated and inclusive measures and thus strengthen resilience. Health is dramatically enhanced in the SFDRR compared to the previous Hyogo Framework for Action that provoked the Safe Hospital Campaign. Recent mega-disasters are changing its face both in the impact of hazards and the vulnerability of the communities. Accordingly, our capacity building is also required to be changed, since the health perspectives in disaster are rapidly changing. Every health professionals should recognize how to respond and to be prepared. Climate change, rapid urbanization, lack of resources, poverty and loss of biological diversities are related with each other and have greater impact on human, animal and plant health. This session includes the health overview of the SFDRR, disaster infectious diseases, and biohazards such as Ebola virus disease that require strategies not only by health professionals but also others from different sectors. Agricultural recovery process in the nuclear accident-affected area and designing cities both as a living place and a basis for increasing resilience will also be discussed. The session also introduces proposed activities of the Global Centre for Disaster Statistics that was jointly launched with UNDP and IRIDeS during the Third World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction. The Centre would collect, archive, and analyse disaster damage data based on official sources.
