Assessment toolkit consists of simple software with paper and smartphone application, and it is in layman’s terms for local nurses who are main users. The items in this toolkit include living environment assessment and item of Surveillance in Post Extreme Emergencies and Disasters (SPEED), which was conceptualized to provide real time health information reporting after a disaster developed by WHO/WPRO, and a surveillance item, which have been used by Ministry of Health. In this way, the toolkit was developed to create an Application Programming Interface (API) for data collection and sharing with other health sectors and national surveillance.
