my hero is youThe Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) is an inter-agency forum of UN and non-UN humanitarian partners founded in 1992, to strengthen humanitarian assistance. The overall objective of the IASC is to improve the delivery of humanitarian assistance to affected populations.

The Committee was established following UN General Assembly Resolution 46/182 and resolution 48/57 confirmed that it should be the primary method for inter-agency coordination.

ISGF received from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) who is a full member of the IASC a very nice storybook for children to help them to understand Covid-19.
