Epidemics, Pandemics and Humanitarian Challenges: Lessons from a Number of Health Crises [open pdf - 0B]
From the Introduction: "In the context of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic, we decided to bring together the lessons from our work on major health crises so that they can be shared. [...] We focused on our different research and evaluation projects including both in-depth literature reviews (see annexes) and field work (Haiti, Chad and Yemen for cholera; Guinea, Sierra Leone and the Democratic Republic of Congo for Ebola). During these research and evaluation projects, dozens of practitioners were interviewed in the field and at the headquarters of the agencies involved (UN agencies, NGOs [non-governmental organization], donors, and the Health ministries and institutions in the countries concerned). The content of this lesson-sharing document is largely based on these interviews. Additional content is from a study for the Global WASH [water sanitation and hygiene] Cluster on providing WASH assistance in extreme situations."
