Humanitarian Inclusion Standards for Older People and People with Disabilities
These standards provide practitioners and organisations with clear actions that can be taken to protect, support and engage older people and people with disabilities and help us all realise these commitments. They provide guidance to identify and overcome barriers to participation and access in diverse contexts, and at all stages of the humanitarian programme cycle.
These standards represent an important and welcome step towards promoting and improving actions to address the needs of all, with principled impartiality. I hope that you will join us in sharing them broadly, advocating and training for their application, and bringing them wholly into humanitarian practice.
