Epidemic Control for Volunteers: Toolkit
This toolkit supports Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to prepare their volunteers to respond effectively and rapidly at the very start of an outbreak. While not exhaustive, the tools will familiarize volunteers with the most common diseases with epidemic potential. They encourage volunteers to apply evidence-based methods to control the spread of these diseases in their communities, care appropriately for the sick, and, in so doing, reduce mortality.
The Toolkit accompanies the Epidemic Control for Volunteers: Training Manual.
Data Protection Statement related to procurements, partnerships and grants
This statement seeks to provide procedures, protocols, and safeguards with respect to receipt, handling / processing of any personal data from grant applicants and other individual or business bidders related to the procurement of goods and services.
It also outlines the IFRC’s expectation that these parties be able to adequately protect personal data that they process. It is expected that all bidders/applicants are able to provide evidence of their ability to protect personal data.
Practical Guidance for Data Protection in Cash and Voucher Assistance
As the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement implements our commitments to scale up Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA), we are also increasing the collection and processing of personal data, including data belonging to the communities we serve.
Data protection is not only a matter of good governance; it's also about building trust. In times of crisis, affected people may be thinking about more urgent priorities necessary for their survival and safety, rather than risks to their personal data provided to aid organizations. This is even more reason for cash practitioners to respect and be responsible for the protection of their data.
This practical guidance is intended for cash practitioners, or those managing programmes, to embed data protection principles in their implementation of CVA. It is available in English, Arabic, French and Spanish below, and in Portuguese here.

Disaster Law and Child Protection: We Need To Do Better
As climate change is leading to more frequent disasters, children face many risks. These include separation from their families, psychosocial distress, SGBV, trafficking, missing school, premature adoption, losing essential documents, and not participating in decisions.
This IFRC study from 2020 found that many governments are missing or lack adequate laws, polices or regulations to protect children in disasters.
We need a transformative approach that focuses more on prevention not only response. The study recommends that Governments:
Ensure relevant ministries and agencies are mandated to have in place contingency plans fully covering child protection
Include child protection in relevant laws, regulations and policies on disaster risk management
Mandate the collection and analysis of age-, gender- and disability-disaggregated data as part of risk assessments and relevant processes
Draw inspiration, as appropriate, from the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action’s Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Setting to cover key protection issues
Take a coordinated, multi-level and interactive approach to implementation of domestic laws involving child protection; this includes allocating a budget, training personnel, and working with local-level governments and agencies too
