Our international network

The HI network is made up of an international federation and eight national associations:

Together, we mobilize resources and manage projects around the world to support people with disabilities and populations experiencing extreme hardship.

The HI federation implements the network’s social missions in around 60 countries, either under the name “Humanity & Inclusion” or “Handicap International,” depending on the country.

International strategy

HI's mission and activities are underpinned by a multi-annual strategy, principles of intervention, and a clearly-defined scope of activity.

We work in countries around the world running hundreds of projects in emergency, chronic crisis, reconstruction and development settings. The participants of our projects are people with disabilities and a broad range of other individuals experiencing extreme hardship.

HI's 10-year international strategy has 3 priority actions:

  • Inclusion of people with disabilities and other populations in need.
  • Inclusive emergency responses adapted to the needs of the population.
  • Reducing the impact of conflicts on civilians.
