Health Strategy 2020–2023

21 August 2020
Health Strategy 2020–2023 builds on Health Strategy 2014–2018 and addresses the increasing volume of unmet humanitarian health needs, many of which result from: protracted conflict, poverty and climate-related shocks; severe shortages in the global health workforce and weakened health systems; and the increasingly challenging and complex humanitarian space. This strategy, supplemented by a four-year implementation roadmap, guides health operations for the period 2020–2023. It is aligned with the ICRC Strategy 2019–2022, in that it emphasizes ensuring humanitarian action is people-centric, delivered in collaboration as much as possible, and forward-looking (i.e. seeking to make a sustainable humanitarian impact).
