Difficulties to understand health disaster become part of the urban planning and its institutional challenge to support disaster risk reduction for the community. Hence, it needs a shift from reactive to proactive approach towards the community and institutional resilience. The current focus on physical disaster of Malaysia’s Policy Directive No. 20 and its three tier level of Disaster Management Governance; National, State and District level, need to be connect with the health disaster capacity with the city or urban level capacity. Therefore, strengthening the multi sectoral resilience capacity through urban planning implication is crucial as they are the closest to community. The integration and consideration of health resilience also important to support the first level of three tier of disaster management level in Malaysia, especially at the district level. It helps shared responsibility and the closest to the community. The paper deploy the situational analysis by referring to several underlying theories; world health organisation, WHO health emergency disaster risk management, health-EDRM framework, the 10 essential component Making Cities Resilience, MCR 2030, Public Health Addendum by United Nation Disaster Risk Reduction, UNDRR and UN Habitat Cities and Pandemic, to search significant with planning policy and institutional capacity for better resilience capacity. Finally, for the urban planning implication in the context of Malaysia decrease the essential component into nine: i. public health and governance, ii. planning and coordination ‘disaster scenario’, iii. public health & finance, iv. institutional ‘resilience’ capacity, v. information & knowledge management ‘disaster response’, vi. risk communications, vii. health infrastructure resilience, viii. resilience health & related services, ix. societal ‘community’ resilience capacity. The urban planning implication would give chance to empower the local authority to integrate health disaster in the organization and the community with better monitoring and evaluation purpose.
