Becoming an anthropologist in post-Ebola Giunea

Follow this link to the blog authored by Sekou Kouyate on the opportunities and challenges of becoming an anthropologist and a qualitative researcher in post-Ebola Guinea.

Kouyate is the research assistant and coordinator for HHERG’s two R2HC funded studies in Guinea: on perceptions of research and on the provision of palliative care during the 2014-16 Ebola Virus Disease outbreak.

Just launched: Ethics and the Closure of Humanitarian Healthcare Projects

Though ethicists have examined the ethics of humanitarian priority-setting–including around the initiation of humanitarian projects–to our knowledge, none have undertaken a focused examination of the ethics of closing humanitarian projects.

It is critical to examine the ethical implications of closing projects and consider how closure can be accomplished in ways that are consistent with humanitarians’ ethical commitments including minimizing harm, being accountable, upholding impartiality and neutrality, and demonstrating respect.

In partnership with Médecins du Monde-Canada, the team is made up of Matthew Hunt, Ryoa Chung, Lisa Eckenwiler and John Pringle.

You’re invited to complete ALNAP’s SOHS 2018 survey

On behalf of ALNAP,

We are currently carrying out the research for the latest State of the Humanitarian System report. We are keen to maximise the number of completed surveys across different responses in order to make our analysis as accurate and useful as possible.
Anyone who has worked in a humanitarian response since 2015 can complete it. (It will only take only 10 minutes):


This is a unique opportunity to get your voice heard: your views could help shape future humanitarian action.
Thanks in advance for your help and we look forward to getting more responses soon.
