Training in Public Health in Emergencies

The next Public Health in Complex Emergencies training programme will take place between 26th July and 7th August in Thailand, and 1-14 November at the Institute of Public Health, Uganda.

This two-week residential course focuses on critical public health issues faced by NGOs working in complex emergencies. The goal of the course is to enhance the capacity of humanitarian assistance workers and their organisations to respond to the health needs of refugees and internally displaced persons affected by these emergencies. Participants will master key competencies in a range of sectors including epidemiology, communicable disease, nutrition, reproductive health, protection & security, psychosocial issues, and coordination.
