This is a good question ! with so Many answers and purpose!

Field experiences and lessons learned from the ground (like most vulnerable countries before this actual context - (Africa, asia, middle east, south america) can be deployed and projected differently in western countries.

what are the blocking factors? or barriers to react corectly ?

Why only thinking about COVID ? and why we forget other diseases ? or other Human factors in this crisis time ?

Which Western countries apply all the Humanitarian Manuals correctly ?

Thank you,

Could you please clarify what kind of information system you are referring to? For example, are you referring to disease surveillance systems (a priority preparedness and readiness action) or knowledge management of guidance, tools, lessons learned etc.? 

With thanks, 

Isabelle

Dear Anonymous39240,

Thank you for the clarification.

With regard to your question on disease surveillance systems, please note that the GTAM is developing a guidance note on Nutrition Information Systems (NIS) in the context of COVID-19 which is due to be finalised very soon. In the meantime, you could start by looking at:

With regard to your question on what are the humanitarian indicators that needs to be considered for every emergency, please take a look at the Nutrition Cluster's Indicator Registry  which is part of the Nutrition Cluster Information Management Toolkit. You will also find essential indicators in the Sphere Handbook.
