The Health Crisis Center held an International Training Consortium On Disaster risk reduction workshop on Februari, 20-24th 2017 in Banda Aceh. The theme in this activity is "Learning from Pidie Jaya Earthquake Response 2016".
This theme was chosen by considering that Indonesia is a country with a considerable degree of earthquake disaster in the world. Almost every region has an earthquake vulnerability. And remember the earthquakes are a sudden onset disaster that requires high preparedness of all components which involved.
Based on the experience of earthquake handling that occurred in December 2016 in Pidie Jaya District, we can learn, mainly related to health team management and post-emergency handling. This activities were attended by 40 participants from City / District Health Office on the Sumatra and Java that are prone to earthquake disaster.
