The 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) epidemic and the response has been accompanied by a massive ‘infodemic’ - an over-abundance of information – some accurate and some not – that makes it hard for people to find trustworthy sources and reliable guidance when they need it.

Stories of irrelevant aid regularly arise in humanitarian assistance. People affected by disasters or crises receive food they cannot eat, services they do not want or technologies they cannot use. If they are not getting what they really need, something is going wrong. Relevance is central to humanitarian principles and standards, however, putting it into practice is profoundly difficult and potentially disruptive. Realigning the humanitarian... More
