Javan quake victims needs medical supplies:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Despite the significant amount of emergency and surgical supplies sent by the World Health Organization (WHO) in response to the earthquake disaster in Java, more of these supplies are urgently needed. Indonesian government requests for more supplies are highlighted in a WHO announcement issued yesterday, in which the WHO reports having sent emergency health kits to cover the medical needs of around 50,000 people for three months, together with surgical kits to support 600 operations. Immediately after the disaster, some doctors said they had sufficient supplies and medicines, but the shortages have emerged as the hospitals that remain operational in the region have been overwhelmed by several thousand - some reports suggest up to 20,000 - cases of injury, mostly involving trauma, with a significant number requiring surgery.
