Workshop on Improving Training in Nutrition in Emergencies

A workshop on 'Improving Training in Nutrition in Emergencies' will be held on 6th and 7th November 2008 in Nairobi, Kenya.

The workshop is an initiative of the Global Nutrition Cluster, an umbrella group of humanitarian agencies led by UNICEF. The Nutrition Cluster has identified the need for better capacity to respond to nutritional issues within countries affected by emergencies, as well as the importance of developing effective and sustainable emergency nutrition training courses.

Workshop participants will also be introduced to the new Harmonised Training Package (HTP). Developed by the Nutrition Cluster, the HTP consists of 21 modules covering all aspects of nutrition in emergencies1.

Around 40 participants are expected to attend the workshop which is being arranged by NutritionWorks, a partnership of international nutritionists based in London, and the Centre for International Health and Development, University College London.
