KINSHASA, Democratic Republic of Congo, 6 October 2015 – The escalation of violence in the Central African Republic (CAR) caused over 2,000 people, most of them women and children, to flee into neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) within one week.

WHO has an essential role to play in supporting Member States to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies with public health consequences. An Emergency Response Framework (ERF) was developed to clarify WHO’s roles and responsibilities in this regard and to provide a common approach for its work in emergencies. Ultimately, the ERF requires WHO to act with urgency and predictability to best serve and be accountable to populations affected by emergencies. ERF describes WHO’s internal grading process for emergencies.
