Introducing the HSPapp

The Humanitarian Standards Partnership app (HSPapp) provides user-friendly access to global humanitarian standards on mobile devices. Launched in September 2017, the HSPapp is designed for field practitioners working in emergencies. The HSPapp consolidates more than a thousand pages of content from six sets of standards and includes fluid cross-referencing and a robust search facility. All content is available in English, with some standards also available in French and Spanish; other languages will be added progressively. The HSPapp works on and offline and is available for free on the most popular mobile platforms, including iOS and Android mobile phones and tablets. The HSPapp is produced by the HSP partners and developed by Data Nirvana.
