This resource refers to the 2014 edition of the Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS). A more accessible CHS will launch in March 2024. To find out more about the updated CHS and transitional phase, please visit the CHS website.

Hosted on the Disaster Ready Platform, this  1-hour course will help you to understand and use the CHS PSEAH Index, to integrate elements to better prevent and respond to sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment in your own, and your organization’s work.


  • Describe the purpose and importance of the PSEAH Index.
  • Recognise the structure of the PSEAH Index and how it relates to the broader CHS commitments.
  • List six ways the index can support organisations to implement PSEAH.
  • Identify how the PSEAH Index can support your own work.
  • Recall where to find additional resources and support.

This module has been designed for all humanitarian and development workers, to highlight their direct or indirect responsibilities related to PSEAH. This includes, but is not limited to, programmes staff of any kind, managers of all levels, HR, and PSEAH Focal Points.

It is recommended that all learners complete the sections  ’About the Index’ and ‘Using the Index’ in your work. You can then choose which of the six sections related to specific areas of work to complete, based on what is most relevant to your role and interests.
