RedR and IHE merger

Effective from June 2003, RedR - Engineers for Disaster Relief - and International Health Exchange (IHE) two of the UK's leading humanitarian relief personnel organisations, have merged. By joining forces, the aim is to provide for more integrated recruitment, training and information services, and support for those engaged in humanitarian work. With a combined membership of over 2,000, the new organisation will provide training to over 1,000 aid workers each year. All existing recruitment, training and publications services offered by both organisations will continue.

IHE and emergency nutrition

The May 2003 issue of the IHE quarterly publication, The Health Exchange, has a special focus on emergency nutrition. Entitled Food for thought - challenges for nutritionists on the frontline it includes a series of articles by practitioners on topics such as emergency needs assessments, community-based treatment of malnutrition, and tackling micronutrient disorders. It also contains a nutrition resources guide, training section, and the latest humanitarian health-worker vacancies and relevant courses.
