Shaping the future: Our strategy for research and innovation in humanitarian response.

A global organisation that finds solutions to complex humanitarian problems through research and innovation..
Our purpose is clear: we work in partnership with a global community of humanitarian actors, researchers and innovators to improve the quality of humanitarian action and deliver better outcomes for people affected by crises.
We empower the humanitarian community. Find out how we can support you...

Our Research for Health in Humanitarian Crises (R2HC) programme has supported over 100 humanitarian health research studies since 2013. The premise: better evidence leads to more ethical and effective interventions, which in turn improves health outcomes for people affected by humanitarian crises. Ten years on, we are launching a collection of impact case studies. They showcase the successes and learnings of very different studies. They explore successful strategies and contextual enablers for influencing humanitarian policy, practice, knowledge, and capacity with evidence.   

We will be running a campaign profiling each of the case studies between 11 July – 25 August. A virtual event will be held in the week of 11 September to dig deeper into the learnings from the case studies. 

We’re extremely thankful to our former grantees, their partners, our donors, and the external stakeholders who have provided evidence and insights to help us understand the impact of the research we have funded on humanitarian policy, practice and understanding.  

We welcome your support in spreading the word.
