WHO Guidance on Research Methods for Health and Disaster Risk Management
Organization: World Health Organization (WHO)
The WHO Guidance on Research Methods for Health-EDRM is a living reference document. The contents will be updated in response to the new and important scientific evidence. Given the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic, WHO plans to continually update the contents in 2021, and also include additional chapters on COVID-19 and other emerging topics. This Guidance offers practical advice about how to plan, conduct and report on a wide variety of quantitative and qualitative studies that can inform questions about policies and programs for health-related disasters and emergencies across different settings and level of resources. Case studies of direct relevance to Health EDRM provide real-life examples of research methods and how they have modified policies.
The book is useful for health professionals in Health-EDRM, academia, government agencies and ministries, international organizations, and community groups and civil society organizations.
