COVID-19 Humanitarian— Adaptive programming in settings of conflict and displacement
COVID-19 Humanitarian is an open-access, web-based platform for use by humanitarian actors in preparedness and response to COVID-19. The many COVID-19 guidance and tools for humanitarian settings that are being disseminated require adaptation according to context. Consequently, humanitarians in the field are creating new programs and adapting existing ones, to continue life-saving services in the safest manner possible while trying to reduce COVID-19 transmission. This platform promotes the exchange of field-based COVID-19 program adaptations and innovations, facilitating learning among organizations in different sectors and contexts.
The platform will offer:
- An operationally oriented structure to support actors in finding guidance and tools for humanitarian settings.
- The ability to share experiences with adapting programs to specific contexts to bring field-level innovations, successes, and challenges to the forefront.
- A standardized and simple way to document lessons learned for future and ongoing adaptive programming, and to contribute to the development of new guidance and tools for humanitarian agencies.
Please visit COVID-19 Humanitarian to see our evolving network of participating organizations and context-specific resources. Guidance and submissions from humanitarian actors will be updated regularly.
The COVID-19 Humanitarian website is curated by three academic institutions with experience in humanitarian health: Center for Humanitarian Health at The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Health in Humanitarian Crises Centre at The London School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene and the Geneva Centre for Education and Research in Humanitarian Action of The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies and The University of Geneva.
