Voluntary groups

1. Major responses and resources were provided by voluntary groups such as the Red Cross, Red Crescent, and non-governmental organizations. The major recommendation in reviewing the tsunami response was that the WHO should work more closely to ensure efficient and good coordination between groups.

2. It was also noted that many of the NGOs lack expertise and codes of conduct, and often have high turnover that can be disruptive. The emphasis here was on the need for clarity on the mutual roles, expectation, and accountability.
