The CHS Alliance is a global alliance of humanitarian and development organisations committed to making aid work better for people. The Alliance was formed in 2015 by bringing together the Humanitarian Accountability Partnership (HAP) International, which focused on accountability to affected people, and People in Aid, which focused on people management in the humanitarian aid and development sectors. CHS has headquarters in Geneva and maintain a presence in London. The Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) serves as an important reference point for the work of CHS Alliance. Other organisations that provide important CHS-related products and services include Sphere, Groupe URD and the Humanitarian Quality Assurance Initiative (HQAI). PIN has been member since 2017, currently under the process of self-certification on CSH standards.
