Nutrition in Emergencies short course

Michael Ven Herp, Bérengère Leurquin, An Verwulgen & Pascale Delchevalerie

A five day course in Nutrition in Emergencies is being run by the Centre for Public Health Nutrition, University of Westminster, London, UK (10-14th September, 2007).

The short course provides participants with technical knowledge and up-to-date information regarding delivering nutritional support to those affected by humanitarian emergencies. The course topics include food security, malnutrition, supplementary and therapeutic feeding programmes and other interventions.

The course aims to give participants an overview of nutrition in humanitarian emergencies, including the type of malnutrition, direct and underlying causes, how they are assessed, and common nutritional interventions.

Participants are drawn from a range of backgrounds although the course is particularly aimed at nutritionists, doctors, nurses and programme managers who work in developing countries.

The course is run by the University of Westminster in collaboration with NutritionWorks and costs £650 sterling.
