Training takes away

The goal of the course is to enhance the capacity of humanitarian assistance workers and their organizations to respond to the health needs of refugees and internally displaced persons affected by these emergencies. Participants will master key competencies in a range of sectors including epidemiology, communicable disease, nutrition, reproductive health, protection & security, psychosocial issues, and coordination. On completion of the training, you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate knowledge on health issues in different settings and accepted approaches/guidelines to deal with them;
  • Analyze and apply this knowledge to a variety of settings, adjusting to time and resources available
  • Design and develop appropriate public health management strategies for humanitarian response, including planning, coordination, monitoring and evaluation

Methodology of training

The mixed-method approach will be used to inculcate the adult learning principles for the training. To make it highly innovative, the trainer will use lectures, discussions, group work, and case studies from existing fraud cases. The training will be conducted in a friendly environment where the participants will be encouraged to bring forward their queries and share their thoughts and opinions. Participative practical activities will reinforce individual and group learning. The training will be evaluated at every day’s end to know the shortcomings/lacking and will be improved for the next day.
