This guidance is based on WHO’s advices for infection prevention and control and other relevant global and local guidelines, and outlines basic protocols for all phases of a home-based NFI distribution, from planning to distribution to close out. Acknowledging the complex, challenging and fast-paced operating environment, partners are invited to adopt these recommendations to the extent possible.The main underlying approaches are: adopt a Do-Not-Harm approach to minimize the risk of infection for staff members, volunteers, and camp residents; increasing overall awareness and hygiene levels for staff members and volunteers; adapt distribution protocols to eliminate close contact and reduce the potential spread of
the infection. The guidance provides recommendations for each phase of home delivery: Planning home delivery (managers and supervisors), Orienting staff members and volunteers (managers and supervisors), At warehouse/office prior to home delivery (supervisors and staff members), During home delivery (staff members and volunteers), After home delivery (staff members and volunteers).
