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.

Researchers will often need to engage stakeholders in humanitarian health by presenting their research in online or virtual settings. This note covers four key elements to consider when planning your online presentation: Purpose, Content, Audience Journey, and Tools and Tech. It also provides tips and resources to maximise impact of virtual presentations contributed by grantees of Elrha’s Research for Health in Humanitarian Crises programme. Key things to remember: tailor your content to audience needs, make key messages clear from the start, and engage your audience to keep their focus.
