Sadly, victims can't always find equal access to humanitarian action and assistance following a disaster. The most excluded and at-risk populations are commonly overlooked when it comes to technologies that provide adequate warnings ahead of time about impending natural disasters. Setting up contingency plans that medically vulnerable individuals might need during and after a disaster will greatly alleviate this technology gap.
The elderly, disabled, and impoverished are statistically more likely to experience the adverse effects of natural disaster, including loss of property and loss of life. Studies show individuals with disabilities or health issues consistently have much higher rates of mortality - up to twice as much as the general population. By targeting equal humanitarian efforts across the board, overall mortality rates can be drastically reduced post-disaster.
