Abstract

In this paper, I propose to analyze the extent to which adequate planning for health and medical intervention in mass emergencies, and effective implementation of such plans, depends on a variety of organizational “interfaces.” I shall discuss the relevance of the “law and order system” and its planning (if only from its traffic flows and controls direction), the essentially of adequate systems to assess, and keep monitoring and updating, disaster status reports and thus, the essentiality of an adequate communications network, and of linkages between general flow of information bearing on rescue and/or (debris) clearance operations to the health organization.
