CBRNE Incident Response and Recovery Training

The GH team prepared a strategic plan to support the health ministry of a Middle Eastern government to further develop and enhance the capability and capacity of the organisation to deliver a health care response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or explosives (CBRNE) emergency potentially resulting in a mass casualty incident. 

Key Accomplishments and Deliverables

  • Developed a strategic risk, threat and impact analysis
  • Delivered a capability assessment
  • Benchmarked leading practices
  • Mapped key stakeholders, interdependences and roles and responsibilities
  • Conducted site visits to 12 hospitals and 38 health care clinics


GH provided the client with a comprehensive report supporting their strategic intention to develop a CBRNE capability with recommendations separated into the four categories of Human Resources, Policy and Procedures, Tools and Equipment and Infrastructure. These findings and recommendations set the conditions for an integrated health care capability to respond to a CBRNE emergency and mass casualty incident throughout the country.
