With flooding slowly receding in New Orleans, health officials have shifted the focus of their concern from the disease threat posed by the polluted flood waters to the utter destruction of the city's health care infrastructure, the cost and delivery of basic health care to the storm's displaced evacuees, and the mental health needs of Katrina's traumatized victims.
