Ericsson Response is a global initiative that works in partnership with UN agencies to put communications expertise, equipment and resources at their disposal in times of need. The aim is to provide volunteers to assist humanitarian relief organisations with communications technology and competence to contribute to a better and faster response to human suffering when disaster strikes.

In November 2013, when super typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, Ericsson Response, in partnership with the Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC) and the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), responded to the emergency by deploying a total of 18 volunteers and two staff, and provided wireless internet connectivity to the aid agencies on the ground.
