Pakistan 2010 Floods Emergency Response Update

Since immediately deploying local teams in July 2010 to respond to unprecedented flooding in Pakistan, International Medical Corps has provided more than 1.4 million patient consultations through a network of mobile and static health clinics serving the hardest-hit areas. We currently run two programs in flood-affected areas to meet the continuing needs of vulnerable populations. International Medical Corps’ OFDA-funded program seeks to meet emergency healthcare needs and mitigate the health and water, sanitation and hygiene-related risks associated with waterborne diseases and unhygienic practices in Punjab and Sindh, coupled with the provision of early recovery activities in these provinces and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Most recently, International Medical Corps launched an ECHO-funded program to provide emergency primary health care, including reproductive health, mental health and nutrition services to flood-affected populations in Sindh province.
