This chapter introduces suitable applications for disaster risk reduction (DRR) using information technologies and geospatial information in primary health care. We assessed the practices in aspects of (1) problems addressed by the solution, (2) stakeholders of the problems, (3) user or beneficiary of the provided information and data, (4) outcomes of the solution, and (5) key technology specifications required for providing the information and data, specifically focusing spatial precision and temporal frequency. The analysis shed light on the current issues and limitations of the implemented systems while paving the way for future development addressing the rules from geospatial services.
