Webinar series: COVID-19 & Humanitarian Settings – Experience and Knowledge Sharing


The READY Initiative, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), the Centre for Humanitarian Health at Johns Hopkins University and the Geneva Centre of Humanitarian Studies hosted a weekly webinar series on COVID-19 and humanitarian settings fro April to July 2020. Recordings of past webinars are available here.

To complement this initiative, COVID-19 Humanitarian, an open access, web-based platform, has been created to promote and value the collection and sharing of field-based COVID-19 programme adaptations and innovations, facilitating learning among organizations in different sectors and contexts.
