The frequency of large-scale natural disasters has been increasing sharply in recent years. According to the 2020 United Nations report, more than 7,300 large-scale natural disasters occurred worldwide during the 20 years from 2000 to 2019. During this time, 4.2 billion people were affected and the death toll reached 1.23 million. From 2020 to the present, we have been facing the unprecedented challenge of the global pandemic caused by the infectious disease.
Under the two sub-themes, “Preparedness of Public Health Resources and Strengthening Governance” and “Disaster Prevention and Welfare to Build a Society Where No One is Left Behind“, this conference will outline recent trends in large-scale natural disasters from academic perspectives and discuss how to ensure medical care and welfare in the event of future disasters based on past experience.
