Harmonised Training Package: Version 2 nears completion

The Harmonised Training Package (HTP) is a resource package of 21 modules containing technical information, training exercises and a resource list on nutrition in emergencies. It is designed to aid course development and individual learning. The HTP is recognised by the Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) and its member agencies as a key resource.

HTP Version 1 (2008) was developed in a GNC initiative, led by NutritionWorks in collaboration with the GNC core team and member agencies and involving individual, agency and academic experts. The HTP Version 2 update (2011) was undertaken in ENN/NutritionWorks collaboration as a contribution to the GNC effort, to reflect the latest NiE technical developments. The same editorial process and stakeholder involvement was used. HTP Version 2.0 funded by the US Office for Disaster Assistance (OFDA) to the ENN.

See below for the list of version 2 modules now available (August 2011). All 21 modules will be available by September 2011. Each module is available in word and a print friendly pdf version.
