Abstract: Disasters are one of the main challenges that face development and progress processes. The impact of disasters is directly related to their severity and the level of vulnerability of individuals and communities. Community members are the immediate victims of the adverse effects of disasters and they have the best knowledge about their local surroundings. This manual focuses on promoting the role of primary health care facilities in strengthening community participation in disaster risk reduction and helping the community to identify indicators of disaster risk and vulnerability. It has been designed to introduce different aspects of disaster risk management to primary health care workers, cluster representatives and health volunteers at the community level in the WHO Eastern Mediterranean Region
