Environmental Health Risks in the Philippines
A massive rescue operation is underway to help the more than four million people caught up in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan that has ravaged parts of the Philippines.
Typhoon Haiyan engulfed coastal towns, destroying around three quarters of the buildings in its path and killing an estimated 10,000 people in the Leyte province alone.
Doctors of the World/Médecins du Monde has dispatched a team of doctors and logisticians to provide emergency care for survivors in the worst-affected areas.
