Humanitarian Health Action

IASC Annual Report for 2009

This year the IASC has made progress on several initiatives aimed at improving quality and accountability in humanitarian response. IASC partners are playing an active role in the revision of the Sphere standards, to be completed in 2010. On inter-agency needs assessment, following extensive consultation and planning in 2009, the IASC is now much better positioned to move forward on this crucial but difficult area.
