Humanitarian Response to the Earthquake Disaster

WFOT offers condolences for the devastating losses associated with the recent earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. WFOT has been in contact with the Turkish Ergotherapy Association and colleagues in Syria to coordinate a response with the Rehabilitation Programme/ Emergency Medical Teams Initiative with the World Health Organization.

WFOT offers a centralised repository of resources to support an occupational therapy humanitarian response to disasters. The resources include education materials, WFOT statements and an interactive forum on the Occupational Therapy International Online Network (OTION).
