Dear Colleagues

Scholarships have been selected and offered now and there are some places still available for this year's Nutrition in Emergencies short course.

Who is this course for?

If you are interested in learning how to deliver nutritional support services to people affected by humanitarian disasters? This intensive week-long training course gives an overview of current best practice in nutrition and food security in emergencies.

It will provide you with the knowledge and skills to improve your practice and help you prepare for the complexity and the reality of working in an emergency context. It is particularly suitable for people who wish to consolidate their knowledge and experience and who are keen to learn from and with others.

The course is aimed at staff of UN agencies, NGOs and national ministries of health in countries that are regularly affected by emergencies. Health workers, nutritionists, doctors, nurses as well as programme managers are encouraged to apply.

You do not need any formal academic qualifications for entry as we value experience. You will be taught by practitioners from a wide range of backgrounds including international NGOs, teaching and research institutes, all of whom have substantial expertise within the sector.
