The complexity and unprecedented number of humanitarian emergencies requiring a health response have resulted in an increased demand for competent humanitarian healthcare providers. The course aims at providing knowledge, strategies and tools to work as a medical personnel in a humanitarian situation. It also provides with public health strategies to decrease morbidity and mortality as well as tools for preventive and curative management of the main diseases and disorders in a broad range of areas needed for the front-line humanitarian health staff.
