Focus Humanitarian Assistance (FOCUS) is an international crisis response and disaster risk management agency. It provides emergency relief to communities suffering from natural disasters or man-made crises. FOCUS implements disaster risk reduction programmes in areas vulnerable to natural hazards and engages in resettlement and reintegration programmes for populations displaced by civil instability or conflict.

As an affiliate of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), FOCUS works alongside the global agencies of the AKDN in regions where longer term development is viable and sustainable after a social crisis. FOCUS and the AKDN agencies also collaborate to provide health and livelihood recovery and rehabilitation initiatives for vulnerable groups during protracted crises. FOCUS was founded in 1994 by the Ismaili community under the guidance of His Highness the Aga Khan. Currently, FOCUS has operational offices in Central and South Asia, Europe and North America.
