Institute of Emergency Hygiene
Although the nearest Institute of Primary Health deals with most aspects of hygiene and disease control, there are occasionally emergency situations in which an additional level of knowledge and authority is required. Institutes of Paramedical Practice do not have the expertise with which to control epidemics and pandemics. These often require powers of intervention and exclusion.
Major emergencies require additional co-ordination above the usual, routine level. Recovering from disasters and other tragedies requires the involvement of support services. This also applies to persons assisting in difficult situations, who certainly need support themselves, hence the Institute for Emergency Hygiene provides counselling and assistance for anyone involved with primary health care, paramedical practice and the support of anyone experiencing a crisis or ongoing distress.
Other health institutes
The aforementioned health institutes are all generalist providers of services. In addition, there are usually at least two specialist health institutes within each settlement. Guest accommodation in each settlement is usually supplied in association with those specialist institutes.
