Join the network


Feedback from members is clear: The H2H Network is greater than the sum of its parts.

Together, we are building the evidence base and raising our voices for the value of open source technical services to humanitarian responders – both within and beyond the traditional system. The network strengthens its members with advocacy, funding, information management, opportunities for learning, and collaboration.

"88 percent of members reported collaborating with other members in the network; 45 percent of those credited the network for facilitating the collaboration."
