Sphere Health and Nutrition Training Modules

The Sphere Project is developing and expanding still further. Health and Nutrition modules have been developed to give in depth technical training for humanitarian staff specialising in these fields. The training module aims to equip health and nutrition personnel with knowledge and skills necessary to implement Sphere minimum standards in health and nutrition.

The process has developed through interagency collaboration. A number of agencies1, raised the necessary funding for the development of the training module. Peter Salama, Muireann Brennan (CDC), Annalies Borrell (Tufts), Fiona Watson (Nutrition Works) and Annie Lloyd drafted the modules. The modules will be available on the Sphere website (www.sphereproject.org) when completed.

They will contain an executive summary, background documents, facilitators guide, visual aids, session plan and evaluation strategies.

An introduction to Sphere can be carried out on the first day. The nutrition and health modules are both two days long and can be given separately. The modules were successfully piloted in Dublin among the agencies involved in their development. The training is also being piloted in Nairobi in March. One of the most important aspects of the training is that it also equips trainees to become trainers.
