Human Resources and Capacity Building in Humanitarian Organizations


At the International Rescue Committee, core skills and best practices for human resources capacity building are in focus to improve supply chain management performance.

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) helps people affected by humanitarian crises in over 40 countries, providing health care and empowering individuals and communities. Md. Shariful Islam is an IRC pharmacist based at the Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. He joined IRC in 2018 to work with health supply chains and ensures that pharmaceuticals and other supplies reach clients in both Rohingya and surrounding host communities. A focus of Mr. Islam’s work is capacity development and supply chain integration to improve management of pharmaceuticals. Recognizing that human resources is key to a successful supply chain, Mr. Islam works with his colleagues to ensure that IRC’s logisticians have the tools and guidance they need to effectively manage health supply chains in humanitarian settings.
