Health Action in Crises
Highlights No 240 - 22–31 December 2008

Each week, the World Health Organization Department for Health Action in Crises in Geneva produces information highlights on the health aspects of selected humanitarian crises. Drawing on the various WHO programmes, contributions cover activities from field and country offices and the support provided by WHO regional offices and Headquarters. The mandate of the WHO Departments specifically concerned with Emergency and Humanitarian Action in Crises is to increase the effectiveness of the WHO contribution to crisis preparedness and response, transition and recovery. This note, which is not exhaustive, is designed for internal use and does not reflect any official position of the WHO Secretariat.

More information is available at: and on the HAC web site.

WHO is calling for an immediate end to hostilities in the Gaza strip and urges Israel to ensure immediate provision of fuel and critical life-saving/trauma care supplies.
