Turkey and Syria earthquake: evidence-based innovations and guidance for acute crisis response.

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...

Conducting research in a humanitarian emergency can be difficult. Conducting research that gets traction with stakeholders and eventually drives changes in policy and practice can be even trickier. 

To help we asked members from the research community to share top tips for conducting humanitarian public health research that leads to impact.

They give advice on how to come up with the right research question, when you should connect with practitioners and policy makers, and the difference that having courage can make.
