OTTAWA, Ontario - May 27, 2016 - PRLog -- The World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) has finished its three-day run in Istanbul as a call by the UN Secretary-General to create a new template for humanitarian action throughout the world.

The results from the WHS created an agenda that the UN feels is an imperative if the world is to live in dignity and prosperity, especially for those who get left behind politically or economically. Primary changes focussed on shifting power to local players, using education and technology (like cellphones) to create efficient responses to crises, improving the efficiency of aid financing and reinvigorating worldwide political will to make these changes happen.

Chocolate Moose Media's Firdaus Kharas was part of the summit's high-level component, bringing his long experience with behaviour-change communications and the effect it has had in health in the developing world. Many of the heads of government and other leaders he met said they had made extensive use of his work, mostly in HIV/AIDS, malaria and Ebola prevention.

"With more than 125 million in 37 countries needing assistance, the world now has more people under international care than at any other time in history. With more than 6,000 attendees and a packed agenda, the WHS was a truly inclusive process that will hopefully lead to needed changes," he says.

Kharas attended the sessions on young people, upholding principles and values and on business because CMM's work is based on the vital role mass communications can have in preventing crises before they happen and then acting swiftly to contain them.
