Abstract

A 7.3-magnitude earthquake recently shook the Ezgeleh district, located about 143 km from Kermanshah city (12/11/2017), in the western part of the country. Due to the severity of the earthquakes and the infrastructure of the nearby cities and villages, a large number of victims needed medical treatment. Since earthquakes are natural disaster, the state of unpreparedness of the health care systems against natural disasters is unusual. Therefore, the aim of this paper was to assess this critical situation and better prepare for subsequent earthquakes.
