Public health in humanitarian crises online course

The Center for Humanitarian Health at John Hopkins University has launched a new online course on public health in humanitarian crises. It provides understanding of public health challenges that affect populations caught up in natural disasters and conflicts and explores how public health concepts and skills can be applied to mitigate their affects. The course is aimed at individuals interested in learning about public health in humanitarian crises as well as seasoned humanitarian workers. Videos can also be downloaded and used as training materials. The course provides a mix of theoretical knowledge and practical examples from recent disasters, taught by instructors and guest lecturers with more than 200 years of combined experience in the field.

The course consists of ten modules, totalling around nine to ten hours of delivered content, with an additional two to three hours of ‘home’ work. Discussion forums are also available. The course is free, although there is a charge of US$49 for a certificate on satisfactory completion of the course. No training or previous experience is required.
