From the DISASTR-OUTREACH-LIB email discussion list: The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is offering a free online course “Health in Humanitarian Crises.” The course, which starts February 6, 2017, lasts for three weeks, and will require approximately four hours of work per week. The course will answer questions such as:
- What are the key health needs in humanitarian crises?
- How can we develop responses to health needs in humanitarian settings with maximum impact?
- How will we respond to health needs in the future?
The course will be particularly relevant to healthcare practitioners and NGO staff, especially those in low- and middle-income countries affected by armed conflict, natural disasters and disease outbreaks. It will also be valuable to individuals studying health or development and to anyone with an interest in the challenges of delivering healthcare in a crisis setting.
