Save the Children
How applicable are psychosocial and protection programmes to high- and middle-income countries? Save the Children has expanded large-scale emergency responses to high-income countries – such as Australia, Italy, Japan, Spain and the USA – and to middle-income countries – such as the Philippines, Chile, Brazil, China and Libya. But the efficacy of psychosocial programmes in these contexts has been little explored. Should Save the Children continue to provide psychosocial programmes after disasters in these countries? How should we ensure that these responses are effective? This report comes from a comprehensive research project that has explored these questions.
