People with disabilities are disproportionately affected by disaster and conflict, and humanitarian aid workers often lack the proper tools to ensure relief and recovery work is inclusive of everyone. For example, early warning information, emergency shelter, health services, and distribution of essential items like food and water may all be inaccessible. The Humanitarian Hands-on Tool, known as HHoT, is designed to fill this gap by providing aid workers in the field with clear, practical and detailed instructions. Not only will this make their work more accessible to people with disabilities, but will include other often-marginalised groups such as older people – and will exclude no one.
