Voluntarism in the Wake of Hurricane Katrina: The Uniform Emergency Volunteer Health Practitioners Act
Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness
In this article we frame the core legal challenges underlying the deployment and use of volunteer health practitioners during emergencies, and discuss how the UEVHPA responds to these challenges. Our intent is to demonstrate how the act provides a workable structure with meaningful answers to key legal questions for VHPs and the entities that send or host them.
