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...

Experiencing a humanitarian emergency can significantly impact the mental health and psychosocial well-being of a person. It can have immediate as well as long-term consequences. Since 2014 we have been supporting research to ensure evidenced-based interventions for mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) in humanitarian crises.

This infographic illustrates why research for MHPSS is needed, and what Elrha’s Research for Health in Humanitarian Crises (R2HC) programme has funded to increase the evidence-base for MHPSS interventions. It visualises the characteristics of our portfolio underscoring that rigorous research is possible in humanitarian crises, and  highlights some of the interventions that our research studies have found to be effective.
