Humanitarian Health Action

The faculty

The course faculty is drawn from a wide pool of experts in core subject areas and in adult learning. They come from the UN (WHO, UNHCR, UNOCHA, etc); NGOS (IFRC, ICRC, Conflict Management Group, Mercy Corps) and academic institutions and Universities. Where possible, former course graduates are invited to act as resource persons and to reflect on the usefulness of the course in real-life. We are continuously increasing our pool of experts by nurturing new partnerships.

Within WHO, we are able to draw on other technical departments at headquarters and regional and country offices.

The course is organized and managed by WHO’s Department of Health Action in Crises. Courses delivered in the field are organized in close collaboration with the respective WHO regional and country offices and the support of regional experts.
