Disaster Information Management Research Center

The National Library of Medicine® (NLM) is pleased to announce a new Website about its Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC). The DIMRC Website seeks to provide access to quality disaster health information at all stages of preparedness, response, mitigation, and recovery.

DIMRC is tasked with the collection, organization, and dissemination of health information for natural, accidental, or deliberate disasters. The Center is committed to providing this information as part of the federal effort to help prepare for, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the adverse health effects of disasters. It will work with federal, state, and local government, private organizations, and local communities.

DIMRC will focus its efforts on providing disaster health information resources and informatics research that will be directly beneficial for public health officials, healthcare providers, special populations, and the public.
