June 2017. How to Fix the Broken Humanitarian System

How to Fix the Broken Humanitarian System: A Q&A with Paul Spiegel

Last night the Lancet published a multi-part series on humanitarian response. It couldn’t be more timely as the world struggles with multiple crises that have forced tens of millions of people from their homes—a scale unseen since World War II.

Unfortunately, the humanitarian response system designed to help them is broken, says Paul Spiegel, author of an article in the series.

Reconfiguring humanitarian response to make it more coordinated and effective in dealing with prolonged crises like that of Syria is essential for the future, says Spiegel, director of the Hopkins Center for Humanitarian Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

What’s needed? Stronger command and control of response, integration of displaced people into local economies and national health systems and fewer organizations involved in response, says Spiegel in a GHN Q&A.
