I'm developing a weeks worth of training materials on the Health in the Humanitarian Context to incorporate into a masters level Health Systems course. The door is wide open in terms of how I want to structure it. Does anyone have any good tips on existing capacity development materials in this realm - anything from powerpoints to case studies to group work? I'm thinking good areas to include would be the humanitarian principles, the structure of the humanitarian system, humanitarian reform the cluster approach, WHO's ERF, Field Medical Teams, the basics on emergency nutrition programming. Other key areas? Thanks

Dear Leah

Great to hear you are working on this material, which i think will be an asset to a masters level Health Systems course. I would be really keen to also see IYCF-E included in the basics of emergency nutrition programming part if possible, as it is a cross-cutting area of programming that relates to all sectors, including health. Save the Children are currently finalising the IYCF-E curriculum for the IYCF-E trainings we have been holding and so have a wealth of material (powerpoints, case studies, group work etc.) available. We would be happy to work with you to discuss how to incorporate this sub-sector if useful.

Many thanks

Nicki

Thanks Mohamed for offering to share. Is the focus on health systems in emergency settings? I'm reluctant to share my email address widely on this forum. Perhaps you could post a dropbox link which I could download from rapidly? Cheers, Leah

From Diana Hiscock:

Dear Leah,

Can I draw your attention to the new publication from the ADCAP programme – the Minimum Standards for age and disability inclusion in humanitarian response We’ve published them on the HelpAge website with a news article and you can also find them on this specific page about ADCAP our emergencies resource page and publications library . The direct link to the pdf is www.helpage.org/download/55cc741a169c8

The final versions of the e-learning modules are now also online: here on ageing and here for the one on disability. These links should be taking you directly to the courses – however in some web browsers it will take you to the disasterready login page (and when you log in, only then to the courses).

Hopefully of use – there is a training PPT – that has not been well tested yet – so maybe we can provide that at a later date? If you would like a particular article written – other than what is enclosed – please let us know.

Regards,

Diana Hiscock

Dear Leah, I teach a course on Nutrition in emergency situations at Maseno University Kenya and would very much love to access these materials as soon as they are ready. I also agree that the component of YCFP should be included

Dear Leah,

In addition to Diane's message on the minimum standards for age and disability inclusion in humanitarian response, I have developed some training material on older people's health in humanitarian context that I can share with you if you wish. The principles can be found in the guidelines developed by HelpAge available here (scrolled down the page to find the health guideline).
