DART Programs consist of primary humanitarian sectors of food security, shelter and non-food items (NFIs), water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), medical assistance, nutrition, public health and epidemiology.  Programs personnel, in cooperation with the TL, are responsible for planning, designing and implementing all disaster response activities.  Sector managers attend humanitarian coordination meetings and act as liaisons to other organisations to avoid duplicity of aid and promote a more coordinated disaster response by the global relief community.  Other duties include writing concept notes, proposals, and collecting and submission of daily assessment and activity information.
