There are several types of classification of Victims:

  • type of Accident the Victim is linked to
  • Victim statistic category (APMBT, CCM, CCW, MOTAPM)
  • Vulnerable group (Female headed household, HIV positive, Minority group, Orphan)
  • Victim state (Alive, Deceased)
  • Victim type (Direct beneficiary, Indirect beneficiary)
  • Displacement status (Not Displaced, IDP, Refugee, Returnee)
  • Current rehabilitation pillar (Emergency, Immediate, Transition, Stabilisation, Protection)
New 6.0.png The Victim item is the item which has had the most updates in version 6.0 which include 2 new subobjects and 124 fields. There are also fields that have been renamed in version 6.0.

In version 6.0 fields that facilitate for countries to report to RAPID have been added to Accident and Victim.

Cause, Needs assessment and Assistance relationships

The relationship between Cause and Needs assessment is not given i.e. just because a victim has a Cause (to be a victim), it does not mean that he/she has a Need, because Needs are related to the victims’s social conditions and work situation. A victim may have a Need even if he/she does not have a Cause recorded.

The relationship between Need and Assistance is not given i.e. just because Assistance is given in order to meet a Need it does not mean that the Need is fulfilled. A victim may receive assistance even if he/she does not have a recorded Cause and/or Need.

Cause subobject

Causes may be classified in the following categories:

  • Medical (from injuries to epidemic)
  • Mental and emotional (illness, dysfunction and/or stress)
  • IDP/Refugee/Returnee (displacement/movement of people)
  • Natural disasters (need of assistance caused by the effects of natural hazards)
  • Protection (violence generates the need of assistance)

There are two ways of classifying injuries and amputations:

  • using the "old" field Injury
  • the new Cause subobject.

This page shows how the Injury field correspond to the new Cause classification.

  • Legal support (law/policy)
  • Institutional reinforcement (institution staff support, education/awareness and access to services)
