New Social Science in Humanitarian Action Platform (SSHAP) Reviews

From Olivia Tulloch of Anthropologica:

I’m pleased to circulate a new SSHAP output. This is a review presenting social science considerations for care and infection prevention and control (IPC) for COVID-19 in home-care.   

http://www.socialscienceinaction.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/SSHAP-COVID-19-Homecare-review_FINAL3_pdf.pdf

A couple of differences from recent outputs: we have a new design, and this one is a longer review, not our standard brief format.  It explains why home care is important, provides an overview of existing guidance and models for home and community-based care, and provides themed recommendations for guidance and support. 

As usual the infographic and translations will follow on the website in the coming days.   This is our 10th output, and requests keep coming, so you’ll hear from me in due course.  

Also I’m aware that some people did not receive notification of our recent briefs: on conflict and displacement in Mayanmar available at: https://www.socialscienceinaction.org/resources/key-considerations-covid-19-context-conflict-displacement-myanmar/

And on marginalised populations in South East Asia, available here: https://www.socialscienceinaction.org/resources/key-considerations-covid-19-management-marginalised-populations-southeast-asia-transnational-migrants-informal-workers-people-living-informal-settlements/

All the briefs are available on the website, and some recent ones below, in case you missed them.

Please tweet and share as appropriate. Please let me know if you don’t want to receive future outputs, and if there are others you feel you have missed out on, please see more information below.
