Disaster management is the execution of various resources and responsibilities that deal with all civilized aspects of tragedies in the consequences of natural or human hazards. There are multiple factors that lead to the outbreak of epidemics after natural disasters, but often the association between natural calamity and the outbreak of epidemics is misconstrued. The health care system of any country has an imperative role in combating the disaster-related epidemics. In developing countries like India, where resources are limited, the public healthcare system plays a vital role against battling epidemics after a natural disaster, hence, preparedness of public health care system to combat epidemics after natural disasters is considered as a narrative review.
