Nutrition in Relief and Emergencies Course

The International Health Exchange (IHE) and Merlin are offering a residential training course for health care professionals on the subject of nutrition in relief and emergency situations taking place at the Kingston University in Surrey between the 15th and 18th of July.

The course will try to provide health workers with the skills and knowledge required when working in emergency and relief settings and focus on other nutrition related problems. The course includes an overview of nutrition surveys and anthropometric measurement techniques followed by an outline of response strategies, including general ration distribution, supplementary and therapeutic feeding and strategies to support food security. Special cover will also be given to social and political factors affecting food security.

The training will be given by members of Nutrition Works, a partnership of six independent nutritionists who have extensive public nutrition experience.

To apply for the course, please contact Veronica Johnson at IHE, 8-10 Dryden St, London WC2E 9NA. Note that the cost of the course is £220 for individuals paying for themselves and £250 for those paid for by organisations; a deposit of £80 is required.

For further information about the content of the course contact: Jacqui Dunn (MERLIN) on +44 0171 487 2505.
