UNICEF e-learning on nutrition in emergencies now available

A UNICEF e-learning course 'Introduction to Nutrition in Emergencies: Basic Concepts' is now available. This online course covers basic concepts around the humanitarian system and reform, undernutrition and response in emergencies, individual assessment, and micronutrients. It is based on key modules of the Harmonised Training Package: Resource Material for Training on Nutrition in Emergencies (the HTP) and reflect the content of HTP Version 2, 2011.

The course comprises 5 sections comprised of lessons and mini-lessons. Each lesson takes approximately 40 minutes to complete and each mini-lesson takes 10-15 minutes. At the end of each section there is a knowledge based test comprised of 15 questions. A final emergency scenario assessment tests application of the content from all 5 sections. To successfully complete the course and receive a certificate, a pass rate of 80% must be achieved for each test and for the emergency scenario assessment.

Contents:

Module 1: International Humanitarian System and Reform (6 lessons)
Module 2: Basic concepts in Nutrition in Emergencies (6 lessons, 1 mini-lesson)
Module 3: Measuring undernutrition in individuals (3 lessons, 4 mini-lessons)
Module 4: Micronutrients (4 lessons, 2 mini-lessons)
Module 5: Infant feeding in emergencies (7 lessons, 3 mini-lessons)

Sections 1-4 were commissioned by UNICEF to the Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN) and were jointly developed and produced. Existing e-learning content on infant and young child feeding in emergencies has been integrated as Section 5.

The course is hosted on UNICEF's intranet for UNICEF staff and for external users at http://www.unicef.org/nutrition/training
