East Asia: Appeal No. MAA54001 Programme Update No. 6


This report covers the period 1/5/2007 to 31/12/2007 of the 2006-07 appeal.

In a world of global challenges, continued poverty, inequity, and increasing vulnerability to disasters and disease, the International Federation with its global network, works to accomplish its Global Agenda, partnering with local community and civil society to prevent and alleviate human suffering from disasters, diseases and public health emergencies.

In brief

Programme Summary: The East Asia regional delegation supports five national societies, with programme support in China, Mongolia, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). During this reporting period, severe flooding in China and the DPRK caused extensive damage and loss of life. The Federation assisted the two national societies in launching emergency appeals for support in their efforts to meet the needs of those affected.

Disaster management strategies in the region were strengthened through the organization of a regional disaster management workshop as well as other joint and individualized activities. Furthermore, the regional delegation played a key role in promoting the establishment of an HIV alliance in Mongolia and China.
