HEALTH

“Securing the health and wellbeing of crisis-affected communities is the primary goal of humanitarian action. This cannot be achieved by the health sector alone. In fact, every sector has a role to play.” – World Health Organisation

The Challenge

We live in a time of unprecedented advancements in global health, but many of these achievements are out of reach for the estimated 168 million people currently affected by humanitarian emergencies.

For such populations, conflicts, disease outbreaks and natural disasters bring a number of particular challenges. A lack of safe drinking water revives the threat of centuries-old diseases such as cholera, while shortages of basic medicines can turn manageable conditions into mortal threats over night.
