Kobe Earthquake

Immediately after the 1995 earthquake in Kobe, Japan, which left more than 500,000 persons homeless and 5,000 persons dead, HPRT and its Japanese colleagues entered the city to provide assistance. An initial needs assessment led to the development of the first¬†culturally valid screening instrument for Japanese earthquake survivors. Since then, HPRT has continued to provide consultation to local and national policy makers in Japan.¬†Click here to download HPRT’s Kobe Earthquake Report.
