Intergovernmental Organisation

Focus Humanitarian Assistance (FOCUS) is an international group of agencies established in Europe, North America and South Asia to complement the provision of emergency relief, principally in the developing world. It helps people in need reduce their dependence on humanitarian aid and facilitates their transition to sustainable self-reliant, long-term development. Focus Humanitarian Assistance is affiliated with the Aga Khan Development Network, a group of institutions working to improve opportunities and living conditions, for people of all faiths and origins, in specific regions of the developing world. Underlying the establishment of FOCUS by the Ismaili Muslim community is a history of successful initiatives to assist people struck by natural and man-made disasters in South and Central Asia, and Africa.

Organisational Structure Today, FOCUS units are located in six countries:
Afghanistan, Canada, India, Pakistan, Europe (headquartered in the United Kingdom) and the United States.
These offices serve as the primary implementers of FOCUS programs in different regions throughout the world. It also has additional field offices in Tajikistan. Each FOCUS Unit is incorporated as a registered charity or non-profit organisation in its respective country, and is governed by a Board of Directors.
