COVID-19 guidance based on humanitarian standards

Applying humanitarian standards to fight COVID-19

The Sphere Handbook and the other Humanitarian Standards Partnership (HSP) initiatives offer guidance on the minimum response all crisis-affected people have the right to expect. They establish what needs to be in place for affected populations to survive and recover with dignity.

Two guidance documents based on humanitarian standards are currently available:

  • A four-page document focusing on applying the Sphere standards in Coronavirus responses (download in English);
  • An updated version that also includes recommendations based on the Core Humanitarian Standard and other humanitarian standards initiatives (download in English).

On this page, you will find standards-based guidance on COVID-19 in multiple languages, additional resources produced by the Sphere community, news and information on upcoming learning events.
