 This press release details the global recognition of two health workers, who today will receive prestigious global health awards at the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C., in recognition of their work caring for child burn victims and others with surgically repairable conditions around the world.When Dr. Nancy Chee, a hand therapist in San Francisco, and Dr. Shafquat Khundkar, one of the first plastic surgeons in Bangladesh, met in Dhaka 10 years ago to help restore functionality for disabled burn survivors, they never dreamed that they would be together again in Washington, DC, as two of only 26 global health worker recipients of The REAL Awards, presented by Save the Children and the Frontline Health Workers Coalition at 5pm EST on Wednesday, April 9, in Dirksen Senate Office Building. In 2004, Drs. Chee and Khundkar, both with ReSurge International, treated dozens of poor patients with surgery and physical therapy so they could use their hands and arms again after debilitating burns caused their wounds to contract and fuse, and their limbs to become useless. Over the last decade, they have treated hundreds more and built the capacity of medical professionals in developing countries, with Khundkar founding the first plastics residency program in Bangladesh and with Chee teaching hand therapy as a volunteer in South Asia. Today, Chee and Khundkar will be reunited as they are honored among a select group of top global health workers at The REAL Awards -- a first-of-its-kind global awards program designed to celebrate and honor the lifesaving work of healthcare workers around the world.

This study was conceived by the Global Protection Cluster at a moment (late 2011/early 2012) when the trend in protection funding appeared to be in sharp decline. The precursor study on Child Protection funding: Too Little, Too Late was also commissioned at a moment of apparent funding decline in 2009. When we looked at the funding trends to all areas of protection within the purview of the Cluster, and over a longer period (2007-2012), we found that protection is usually underfunded in relation to the amounts requested in the consolidated appeals, and “more underfunded” relative to most other clusters. But we also found that overall protection funding (including the amounts flowing outside the appeals) has remained steady since at least 2010, and that funding relative to appeals picked up in 2012. The picture is made more complex by the fact that so much protection funding is not recorded as such, and there are significant variations between countries, as well as between years. The problem then is not so much that protection funding is reducing, but that it flows in different ways, it fluctuates, and also concentrates in some emergencies more than others. During the course of the study, evidence moved us away from the original hypothesis that protection is simply underfunded and needs renewed advocacy, towards an attempt to understand some of the drivers behind the observed funding trends. Rather than looking toward the donors as the main reason for these trends, we ended up reflecting also on how protection funding can be stabilised, better managed by protection actors and donors alike, and eventually increased.

Late in the 1990s, InterAction, along with RedR and USAID’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), developed a curriculum and course materials for safety and security training course. These materials quickly became the basis of NGO security training. It has been over 16 years since the development of those materials and some of them are outdated. With funding from USAID/OFDA in 2013, InterAction in partnership with the European Interagency Security Forum (EISF), undertook a project to update existing curriculum and course materials as well as addresses gaps in current NGO security practices. This report is the product of that project. It provides a narrative on the findings from the research, an updated curriculum, and training guidance tools.
