What is the HTP?

The Harmonised Training Package (HTP) is a training resource and technical reference document that comprehensively documents the latest information on Nutrition in Emergencies (NiE). 

The HTP is the main international NiE training resource developed under the Global Nutrition Cluster umbrella. It is recommended as a key resource for capacity development at country level.The HTP is made up of 21 modules and a glossary. Each module contains four parts: Fact sheet (Part 1), Technical notes (Part 2), Trainers Guide (Part 3), and Resources (Part 4).

All modules are available in word and pdf formats. The HTP is currently available in English. See below more information about where to access the modules. 

Who is the HTP for?

The HTP is primarily a resource for trainers in the NiE sector. It provides trainers from implementing agencies, academic and training institutions with information from which to design and implement a training course according to the specific needs of the target audience, the length of time available for training and according to the training objectives. The HTP can also be used by anyone working in the NiE sector wanting to increase their technical knowledge.

Is the HTP a ready-to-use training course?

The HTP is not a ready-to-use training course. It cannot be used as an ‘off the shelf’ package.  Rather, it should be used by experienced trainers as a package of materials during the process of developing a training course. From the HTP, trainers can extract material and adapt them to the context and different audiences. Tips for trainers and suggested exercises are included.

Who developed the HTP?

The need for the HTP was identified in 2006 by the Global Nutrition Cluster. HTP Version 1 was coordinated and developed by NutritionWorks in 2008 on the basis of a wide-ranging stakeholder consultation, in collaboration with cluster member agencies, individuals and academic experts. The Version 1.0 was funded through the Global Nutrition Cluster.

Cluster members decided to periodically update the HTP modules in order to keep abreast with technical developments. The 2011 HTP Version 2 update was undertaken in an Emergency Nutrition Network and NutritionWorks collaboration using the same editorial process and stakeholder involvement. HTP Version 2.0 was funded by the US Office for Disaster Assistance to the ENN.

Each module has been written by one expert author and reviewed by at least two other experts in the subject area. The authors and reviewers are from academic institutions, United Nations and non-governmental organisations and expert consultants. Authors and reviewers of versions 1 and 2 are acknowledged at the beginning of each module.
