HI intervenes in supporting persons at risk in accessing protection, psychosocial and mental health support, health and functional rehabilitation, and works towards ensuring that humanitarian action is inclusive of persons with disabilities and other populations at risk of exclusion.
For displaced and host populations, HI focuses on protection, psychosocial emergency aid and referrals to lifesaving services. The organization also provides functional and physical rehabilitation services to persons with disability and stimulation therapy rehabilitation for children suffering from malnutrition. For individuals experiencing psychological distress, HI provides mental health and psychological support services and reinforces services to include vulnerable members of the crisis-affected population.
HI provides support, resources and training to local and international humanitarian organizations to implement the IASC disability inclusive guidelines for more inclusive coordination data collection and programming.
In light of the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2022 HI began researching the impact of COVID-19 on persons with disabilities & supporting inclusive health services to respond to their needs.
