We are Elrha, a force for change in the humanitarian community. The research and innovation we support equips the humanitarian community with the knowledge of what works, so people affected by crises get the right help when they need it most.
Our purpose is clear: to empower the humanitarian community to improve humanitarian response. We make this happen by supporting and championing the outcomes of robust research and proven innovations.
We empower the humanitarian community. Find out how we can support you...

Building on the success of our first Research Forum in 2017, our 2019 event offered a unique opportunity for our R2HC community to come together and share knowledge and good practice from our collective experience of conducting public health research in humanitarian crises.

Once again, we brought together humanitarian health academics, practitioners and key stakeholders, to allow for sharing and exchange of the cross-cutting evidence and knowledge that’s been generated across our funded research studies.

We caught up with a few friends of R2HC at our Forum in 2017, to talk about why it’s so crucial to fund research and evidence in humanitarian contexts, the added value that southern research institutes can bring to research partnerships, and the role of R2HC in ensuring what we fund achieves real impact.
