Our Mission

"Coordinating health response in humanitarian crisis"

Mobirise

Introduction

When emergencies occur, coordination is necessary. No one organization can respond to a crisis alone. The Global Health Cluster was created in 2005, as part of the UN Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Cluster System. The Cluster approach was developed by IASC to address gaps and to increase the effectiveness of humanitarian response by building partnerships. 


The Cluster approach… “ensures that international responses to humanitarian emergencies are predictable and accountable and have clear leadership by making clearer the division of labour between organizations, and their roles and responsibilities in different areas. It aims to make the international humanitarian community better organized and more accountable and professional, so that it can be a better partner for affected people, host Governments, local authorities, local civil society and resourcing partners.

South Sudan

Throughout the civil war and since gaining independence from Sudan in 2011, South Sudan has experienced high levels of violence and unrest. There has been mass displacement, loss of livelihoods and destruction of housing. Human rights abuses, including gender-based violence and the recruitment of children for armed groups, have been rife.
