Abstract: This paper describes the process of developing a national pre-disaster plan for physical health and psychological rehabilitation of disaster-stricken communities.Data gathered from a literature review and expert panel discussions informed the process of drawing up unified definitions of physical and psychological health rehabilitation,carrying out stakeholder and STEEP-V analyses,and assigning the responsible organization and the collaborative organizations for each task.The Ministry of Health and the Welfare Organization were selected as the two responsible organizations.Integrated management at all levels,and sharing information,education and funding,were identified as ways to improve stakeholders' participation and collaboration.A system is needed for evaluating the implementation of the disaster rehabilitation plan,using valid and reliable indicators
