The Israel Center for Disaster Medicine and Humanitarian Response was established in 2017 at Sheba Medical Center as a world excellence center specializing in preparedness and response to disasters and emergencies through operational deployment, teaching, training, and research. The center was established with a vision of utilizing the vast experience accumulated in Israel in these fields, sharing this experience and collaborating with other nations and organizations worldwide.
As part of Sheba Medical Center, the Center is unique in having the backing of the largest hospital in the Middle East, with all its medical and paramedical personnel, auxiliary support facilities and logistic capabilities. In addition, Sheba houses a world leading medical simulation center (MSR) with which we work in close collaboration in our training programs. The Center also works in close collaboration with other Israeli agencies such as The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Magen David Adom (The Israeli national emergency medical service), The Israel Fire and rescue Authority and The IDF Home Front Command and International organizations such as WHO, ICRC and MSF.

Recent deployment of teams includes an infectious disease team to a cholera outbreak in Zambia, a burn team to the eruption of the Fuego volcano in Guatemala, a combined team following cyclone Idai in Mozambique, and a pediatric and intensive care team to Samoa following a massive deadly outbreak of measles. In December 2020 the center deployed a specialty team of medical and ICU physicians and nurses to aid Piemonte - Italy in the fight against COVID-19 and similarly, In May 2021 a team was sent to Uruguay to assist and advise on COVID-19 management.
- The Center is currently in the process of developing the capability to operate a full field hospital (classified by WHO as a Type 2 Emergency Medical Team). This hospital will be able to deploy to disaster zones worldwide. However, the center is also involved in disaster preparedness on the home front and this field hospital can also be deployed on the grounds of Sheba Medical Center or any other center in Israel in case of a major event with extensive damage to hospital infrastructure. Due to this capability, the center led the initial response in Israel to the COVID-19 outbreak, establishing in Sheba Medical Center the first COVID designated treatment facility in the country.
- The center is involved in humanitarian medical response projects worldwide. Much such activity has emanated from Sheba over the years through various governmental and non-governmental organizations. The center coordinates all these activities and assists in connecting the professional groups to the appropriate government and international agencies. Recent and current activities include, amongst many others - pediatric cardiac surgery in Nigeria, cataract surgery and dentistry in Papua New Guinea, surgery in Tanzania and Ear nose and throat surgery in Mongolia, trauma surgery in Cameroon, burn care in Haiti and pediatric orthopedics in Tanzania and Uganda.
Teaching and Training
- The center offers comprehensive programs which include a thorough assessment of local needs and available resources, following which a program is tailored which is most appropriate to the local teams. The goal of the training programs is to upgrade the local level of preparedness and incident management capabilities for mass casualty events and disasters from the prehospital stage, through acute hospital care, rehabilitation and incident management at the municipal, provincial and national levels.
- The teaching and training take place in our teaching center the through lectures, case discussions, tabletop exercises and simulation.

Founded in 2002, the Dream Doctors Project integrates professional medical clowns, ‘Dream Doctors’ into Israeli hospitals by training them to work as members of multidisciplinary care teams. Dedicated to improving patients’ wellbeing and enhancing the efficiency of healthcare delivery, Dream Doctor’s trailblazing approach aims to promote medical clowning as an officially recognized paramedical profession so that every child and patient has the opportunity to benefit from Dream Doctors specialized, therapeutic care. Today, 100 Dream Doctors work as integrated members of medical teams in 31 hospitals across Israel, assisting in more than 40 different medical procedures. Dream Doctors offer specialized care to over 200, 000 child and adult patients a year including preemie babies, youth-at-risk, victims of sexual assault, veterans, and communities in trauma, among others. Dream Doctors receive specialized training in crisis intervention and serve as military reservists in IDF humanitarian relief missions around the world. In addition to providing emotional relief to patients and their families, advance healthcare efficacy and improving treatment outcomes, the project aims to achieve the official recognition of medical clowning as a paramedical profession in Israel’s healthcare system so that every patient in need can encounter a Dream Doctor.

Courses of action
Programs to prevent, prepare, respond and rebuild communities affected by disasters and crises. -We implement hand-in-hand missions to deliver help to the communities that need it most. We have carried out rescue missions, delivered groceries, and conducted medical, psychological, and dental consultations.
- Rescue and Immediate Response: The first 72 hours after an emergency or disaster are critical. This is why CADENA formed the Go Team, a team that is prepared to act in an emergency situation.
- Prevention: Resilience-Building. We develop local capacities to prepare vulnerable communities for future disasters.
- Reconstruction: We coordinate the reconstruction of homes, medical centers, and schools affected by disasters and emergencies in alliance with local communities.
- Economic Reactivation: We help boost local economies by “adopting” entire communities while coordinating the reconstruction of homes and schools affected by disasters.
·Education and Training: Participants range from early ages to university students; in these programs, our mission is to plant the seed for a humanitarian call of action and leadership.
Since CADENA is a representative for the World’s Jewish Communities, it was essential to have CADENA Israel. Additionally, Israel is a key regional hub — maintaining contact with Asia, Northern Africa and Europe. CADENA Israel is a direct link with Israeli organizations and government institutions, which allows us to directly influence the humanitarian training of thousands of people through our Education projects and carry out health-related programs.
Cadena Initiative is a Contest of ideas where middle school children propose a solution to prevent or respond to a natural disaster or a humanitarian crisis in a more effective way. It also allows them to empathize with a specific community in the world and propose a humanitarian intervention. Young adults between the ages of 12 and 15 years old from around ten different countries propose a project. The focus of their proposal is to find a better way to prevent or respond to a crisis and, together with their school develop an idea that will be presented in front of an audience and judges.
By promoting skills such as research, analysis, and conflict resolution, we have been amazed by a broad number of impressive ideas that some of these Young Adults have proposed when it comes to helping vulnerable communities. We have a National competition and an international final with 41 schools from 19 different cities. The winners of the international contest receive advisory and financial funding to initiate the launch of their project.
In order to be a professional rescuer and to be part of our Go Team, it is necessary to have received the proper training. Therefore, CADENA offers 8-week training at the Wingate Institute in Netanya, Israel. This training aims for young adults to become well trained and achieve being the best in their field. In addition, the aim is to create an elite team capable of assisting in any disaster.
Moreover, we are currently developing a new and innovative program: the Humanitarian Hajshara. We are aiming to develop a full 8-weeks program in educating young adults to become humanitarian entrepreneurs, developing their political, social, and environmental awareness In order to become active agents of change.
