2005 National Health Disaster Management Capability Audit
The National Health Disaster Management Capability Audit 2005 (2005 Audit) is the second in a series of national capability audits undertaken by the Australian Health Protection Committee (AHPC), previously the Australian Health Disaster Management Policy Committee (AHDMPC), to provide a national assessment of health assets that may be employed in a health disaster. The first National Health Disaster Management Capability Audit was carried out in 2003 (2003 Audit). In 2005 the AHDMPC agreed it was timely to undertake the second audit. The rationale behind the 2005 Audit was to provide a more current and detailed “snapshot” of Australia’s public health disaster response assets over the audit window of August to November of 2005.
