A Year in Review


As 2017 comes to a close, it's a good time to reflect on another year of progress with Humanitarian ID. Since January around 10.000 humanitarian responders added their profiles, bringing the total to 17.000. We expanded the authentication service to 20 platforms and now provide authentication for nearly 30.000 users.

Based on feedback from Humanitarian ID early adopters, we launched a new version in April 2017, which made finding colleagues and contact lists easier with improved search, simplified checking in and out of lists, and placed all your contact information in one place with a unified user profile.

To better support our users we created a series of video tutorials and established a social media presence.

The most searched lists in Humanitarian ID in 2017 were ‘Bangladesh: Cox’s Bazar’‘Hurricane Irma Response’ as well as the contact list for ‘Iraq’. Over the past twelve months we saw a steady increase of usage all around the world. The highest numbers of users this year were based in Nigeria, Iraq and Bangladesh.

We would like to thank everyone who has helped us to improve Humanitarian ID this year, and we hope that Humanitarian ID helped you too!

Here's to new connections in 2018.
