8 Strategies for Preparedness Establish coordination, joint planning, emergency response, communication and information management structures at all levels. Ensure prompt availability of emergency information through joint rapid assessments and/or national and global networks e.g. GIS technology Facilitating early warning systems, diagnosis and prompt management of cases including referral system corresponding to international humanitarian standards during crises Facilitating availability of essential drugs, consumables, detergents etc Mobilizing resources; financial, human, logistical, technical etc to fill critical gaps

9 Establishing Coordination Structures National Level: National Health Sector Crisis Management Team – Membership Ministers for Health – Chair Assistant Ministers – Deputy chair Permanent secretaries – Secretary DMS/DPHS – Vice secretary Departmental heads – Members Partner organizations – WHO, UNICEF, CDC, KRC, ICRC etc Province, County, District – Disaster Management Committees

10 Functions of the Committees 1.Joint planning, implementation and monitoring of the response at all levels 2.Pre-positioning of medical supplies and blood 3.Planning for pre-hospital and hospital management of trauma cases 4.Identifying staff for deployment /re-deployment 5.Mapping of “ Who does what, where and when”, 6.Facilitating emergency health information management and dissemination etc. 7.Conducting joint initial rapid assessments 8.Reporting to other levels 9.Preparing daily SITREPs and press releases 10.Resource pooling 11.Update and share contact list eg KEMSA, HUBs, Police

11 Pre-Positioning of Medical Supplies 1 The national committee has made plans to pre- position trauma kits as follows: – Kisumu KEMSA - Available – KNH trauma store - Available – Eldoret KEMSA – Nakuru KEMSA available If needed – Mombasa KEMSA – Garissa KEMSA All provincial directors will be informed once these are delivered

12 Pre-Positioning of Medical Supplies 2 The national committee has made plans to pre- position inter-agency (medical kits) as follows: – Kisumu KEMSA – Eldoret KEMSA – Nairobi KEMSA – Nakuru KEMSA – Garissa KEMSA All provincial directors will be informed once these are delivered KEMSA is also distributing normal supplies to all facilities in hot spot areas

13 Pre-Positioning of Blood and Lab Supplies All 6 regional and 9 satellite blood transfusion sites have adequate blood More to be mobilized if need be Screening kits and blood bags also adequate Kenya Red Cross and Kenya Airways will be contacted to assist in re-distribution in case of crisis Also planning to pre-position some lab supplies at provincial hospitals esp for enteric pathogens e.g. cholera, salmonella, shigella

14 Pre-hospital Management of Trauma Cases This involves search and rescue, triage, initial treatment and transport to hospitals Lead agency is Kenya Red Cross assisted by – GOK – ICRC – St John Ambulance – Kenya police – AMREF, Volunteers, etc All levels must identify available stakeholders for pre-hospital care

15 Hospital Management of Cases Every level must identify hospitals that cases will be referred to for definitive management These can be national, provincial, district, private hospitals or FBOs Ensure they have adequate trauma kits, medical supplies, disinfectants, detergents, technical staff etc Need to liaise with KEMSA stores for replenishment if they run out of stock

16 Deployment and Prepositioning of Short term Critical Staff The provinces need to compile a list of health workers that can be deployed at short notice to facilities Priority should be nurses, medical officers, surgeons and anesthetists who can work in those regions Can be those retired, in private practice or jobless Talk with local partners for support if needed eg APHIA+, Global One 2015, Merlin National level to intervene only if local partners are unable to support MOMs to provide list of unemployed health workers

17 Moving Emergency Supplies and Critical Staff to areas of Need Each province will be given some funds for – Moving emergency supplies from KEMSA to areas of need – Transporting critical staff (doctors, nurses etc) to areas of need – Conducting initial rapid assessments These funds must be used well and accounted to UNICEF Provinces and districts can also mobilize more funds locally
