Global Health & Humanitarianism

Global Health & Humanitarianism

Humanitarianism is not charity. It is fuelled by the understanding that we are all implicated in the political, economic and environmental decisions that put vulnerable people into crisis.

Over 140 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, while available protection fails to meet even half of identified needs. The Dahdaleh Institute is responding to this crisis through collaborations with the humanitarian sector in two areas:

  1. Scientific research and technological innovation to improve the public health effectiveness of humanitarian response
  2. Critical examination of the sector’s history, governance, and practices to help shape a global humanitarian system fit for the new century
