A new resource for humanitarians fighting Covid-19
Geneva Centre of Humanitarian Studies is behind a new platform for workers in the field to share their experiences in crisis-affected countries.
From tackling rumours in Nigeria to setting up mental health services in the Philippines, humanitarian agencies responding to Covid-19 have taken on a range of sometimes unfamiliar roles.
With the sector operating under the dual pressures of increased need and tight travel and social restrictions, there is no blueprint for the situations many find themselves in, making it more important than ever for them to share their experiences with one another.
That was the thinking behind the Covid-19 humanitarian platform, launched by the Geneva Centre of Humanitarian Studies in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Center for Humanitarian Health and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The website provides guidance to organisations on how they can respond to Covid-19 in crisis-affected areas, across public health and other fields, as well as how to adapt their existing responses.
