HelpAge has been raising awareness among humanitarian actors and government institutions about the vulnerabilities of older men and women during humanitarian crises in the region since 2009.
This digital learning platform was established for the purpose of remote humanitarian response for hard to reach areas. HelpAge International is utilizing expertise to train international and national organizations, government agencies, and the private sector on Age Inclusive Interventions.
These series of trainings on 'Helping Older People in Emergencies (HOPE)' is designed to strengthen the capacity of humanitarian actors to ensure that their humanitarian action is evidence-based and responds to the distinct needs and priorities of crisis-affected to older men, women, and other vulnerable groups.
The purpose of this manual is to train health workers to use G6PD rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) safely and effectively, so as to inform appropriate decision making for P. vivax radical cure.

Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response.
The 2018 Sphere Handbook builds on the latest developments and learning in the humanitarian sector. Among the improvements of the new edition, readers will find a stronger focus on the role of local authorities and communities as actors of their own recovery. Guidance on context analysis to apply the standards has also been strengthened. New standards have also been developed, informed by recent practice and learning, such as WASH and healthcare settings in disease outbreaks, security of tenure in shelter and settlement, and palliative care in health. Different ways to deliver or enable assistance, including cash-based assistance, are also integrated into the Handbook.
Source: 1,981 listener groups, engaging 9,281 individuals, conducted by IOM,
Bangladesh Betar and ACF from August to November 2018. This feedback was
collected from camps 1, 2, 10, 11, 15, 16, 19, 22, 23, 24 and 25. Listener groups included
an even spread of men, women, adults and children and around 10% of participants
were particularly vulnerable (pregnant women, lactating mothers, older people and
people with disabilities). In addition, focus group discussions were conducted in camp
24 to explore these issues in more depth.
