International Medical Corps has deployed a ten-member international Emergency Response Team that includes Medical and WASH professionals, and has recruited 40 local medical volunteers to staff mobile medical units in and around Tacloban and Tanauan.  Mobile medical units will provide health care services, with a special emphasis on child and maternal health, including nutrition monitoring; medication; clean water, hygiene awareness and promotion; and psychosocial support and training in this area for frontline health care workers. In addition, International Medical Corps will provide a surgical team in Tanauan.  As we begin delivering services, International Medical Corps will also continue assessing additional communities affected by the storm to provide health care and services to those who need it most.
