Summary

Humanitarian crises due to armed conflict, natural disasters, disease outbreaks and other causes are major contributors to ill health and vulnerability worldwide. The persisting effects of crises on health and health systems can undermine decades of social development.

This new programme provides you with the knowledge and skills to improve the health of populations, communities and particular groups within them when these populations are affected by humanitarian crises. You are encouraged to develop transferable and subject-specific skills to address multi-faceted and current health problems in their local setting, as well as internationally.

This self-study programme will suit practitioners, policy-makers or researchers who wish to deepen their understanding of humanitarian issues and increase their potential for career development in public health. It is aimed at professionals who may already be involved in delivering public health projects in humanitarian crises at community, hospital or district level, in research, in ministries of health or other health- or development-related organisations.
