The UCL Institute for Global Health welcomed academics and practitioners to the launch of the Centre for Gender and Health on Thursday 16th February. The UCL Centre for Gender and Global Health comprises a multidisciplinary team that conducts research and works alongside policy-makers and policy-influencers to address the complex relationships between gender norms and health status. Rescue Global is partnered with the UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction, and has an interest in this new UCL Centre due to the strong links between gender, health and disasters.

Operation Orenda took place across the Eastern and Central Visayas islands of the Philippines between 23rd October and 10th December 2016, and formed the primary fieldwork campaign of Rescue Global’s first co-sponsored PhD student, Rebekah Yore. Investigating a multi-hazard environment, data was gathered from households that had experienced either the Bohol earthquake, typhoon Yolanda, or a combination of both. A total of 544 household interviews were conducted across Leyte, Cebu and Bohol, and the survey covered five areas of investigation: housing and assistance received post-disaster; source(s) of livelihood; personal finance, banking and insurance provisions; community groups and perception of infrastructure and key actors, and early warning, preparedness and risk perception.
This week, Rescue Global attended the first annual conference of the UK Alliance for Disaster Research (UKADR) at King’s College, London.
