Standing by Our Colleagues Hit by Hurricane Harvey and Preparing for Irma

IDSA and HIVMA stand with the individuals, families, and communities affected by flooding in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, and urge care, preparation and precautions in confronting health impacts that may pose risks in the days and weeks ahead. “We would like first to emphasize that while widespread disease outbreaks after flooding remain uncommon in the United States, hand hygiene, clean water, as well as access to medications will be essential for preventing and limiting the spread of infectious diseases during this time,” said IDSA President Bill Powderly, MD, FIDSA, and HIVMA Chair Wendy Armstrong, MD, FIDSA in a joint statement.

In addition, the Societies have compiled a list of resources that may be useful as the ramifications of the storm unfold and as our colleagues in the path of Hurricane Irma brace for its impact. The list will be updated as new information becomes available.
