CHS launches in Myanmar language


The Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) is now available in Myanmar language. The CHS management team would like to thank the American Red Cross for coordinating the translation. The CHS in Myanmar language will be an invaluable resource for humanitarian and development organisations working across Asia and worldwide.

Please find below the translated acknowledgements from the preface of the Myanmar langauge edition:

First of all, we wish to convey thanks to the Translation Committee who led the translation process of the Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability from English to Myanmar language.

It is to express our deepest gratitude to Action Aid, American Red Cross, BRAC, CARE, Christian Aid, DanChurchAid, HelpAge International, Lutheran World Federation, Myanmar Red Cross Society, Norwegian Church Aid, Oxfam, Local Resource Center and the Accountability & Learning Working Group for providing technical advice, translation support and financial contribution to this process. We also would like to appreciate and thank the Disaster Risk Reduction Working Group and the Humanitarian Country Team for their support to this initiative.

The Myanmar version of the document is the outcome of a collective contribution of several organisations and individuals. The Translation Committee of the Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability would like to thank each and everyone who participated in the translation and publishing of the handbook.


The CHS is now available in 18 languages on our Standard page: Arabic, Bangla, Bahasa Indonesia, English, French, Haitian Creole, Khmer, Korean, Myanmar, Nepali, Portuguese, Spanish, Swahili, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian and Urdu. We also encourage interested individuals and organisations to translate the CHS into other languages. This helps disseminate the document more widely and supports the efforts of humanitarian and development actors to improvement the quality and effectiveness of their responses. Those wishing to do so should first email info@corehumanitarianstandard.org for more information and approval from the CHS communications team.
