Staff HRV.png

33% of humanitarians saw increased HRV. 
11% showed no change in HRV.
44% saw a decrease in HRV. It is important to note the circumstances of the humanitarians two days before their last HRV reading was taken; having just returned from a mass burial of their community members in Shingal. This likely contributed to the sharp decrease in HRV.
