Updated HTP resource material for nutrition in emergencies training

The Harmonised Training Package: Resource Material for Training on Nutrition in Emergencies (the HTP) is a resource package to aid course development on nutrition in emergencies. The HTP is an initiative of the IASC Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) and has been endorsed by the GNC and its member's agencies.

The HTP update to produce Version 2.0 is being undertaken in a 2 year ENN/NutritionWorks (NW) collaborative project1, funded by the US Office for Disaster Assistance (OFDA). Numerous experts from many different organisations have been involved in writing and reviewing content for Version 2, and have participated generously in the initiative.

The HTP, Version 2 (2011) is being produced by the ENN. The HTP is hosted by the United Nations Standing Committee on Nutrition (UNSCN) at http://www.unscn.org/en/gnc_htp/.

The HTP is organised as a set of 21 modules by subject (see box), each module containing technical information, training exercises and a resource list. It can also be used by individuals to increase their technical knowledge of the sector.
