Emergency Preparedness

As the frequency of wildfires, hurricanes, floods, heatwaves, droughts, and various other natural disasters continues to rise across the United States and its territories, health centers can expect their operations, workforce, and patients to be increasingly impacted. Amidst these challenges, it is crucial for healthcare providers to recognize the heightened risk of intimate partner violence (IPV) and human trafficking (HT) in areas affected by such disasters. IPV/HT should be considered when working in areas faced by a natural disaster or public health emergency because of the increased rates of IPV and sexual violence that are known to follow.
