Phuket, Thailand, 5 May 2005: There is evidence that the Tsunami killed more women than men, said experts, at a press briefing at the conference on 'Health aspects of the Tsunami in Asia'. As women play a key nurturing role in most of the affected countries, their deaths have left many families, particularly children, very vulnerable.
In the early hours of the morning of Sunday 26 December 2004 a massive earthquake measuring 9.0 on the Richter scale struck the west of northern Sumatra. The quake triggered a powerful tsunami that swept the coasts of neighbouring countries and causing serious damage and loss of life. At least five million people were affected in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Maldives, India, Thailand, Maldives, Seychelles, Myanmar.
On 26 December 2004, an earthquake off the Indonesian island of Sumatra triggered a massive tsunami that devastated costal areas of eleven countries around the Indian Ocean. More than 280 000 were killed and at least one million were displaced by the disaster. An unprecedented emergency response ensued, with priority focused on the health and wellbeing of survivors.
