Developing an Ethical Humanitarian Innovation Tool and Resources with the Humanitarian Innovation Fund
The humanitarian health ethics (hhe) research group is a multidisciplinary team of researchers and practitioners collaborating together since 2009 with the aim of helping to clarify the ethical issues that are present in humanitarian healthcare practice. Our research benefits humanitarian and military healthcare practitioners, organizational policy makers, aid agencies and recipients of aid.
Our research contributes to ethical guidance for global humanitarian healthcare interventions by providing evidence and resources for ethical practice in contexts of acute emergency and prolonged development. Learn more about our research projects, publications and presentations here.
Here you can find the Humanitarian Health Ethics Analysis Tool (HHEAT), a collection of case studies that can be used with the HHEAT and additional resources to mitigate, prepare for and manage ethical challenges encountered in contexts of humanitarian health care provision.
