Health Emergencies in Large Populations (HELP)
For more than 20 years, Health Emergencies in Large Populations (HELP) has offered humanitarian workers an intensive training experience in public health principles and disaster epidemiology. The course was founded based on the need for humanitarian workers to acquire a holistic understanding of the needs of refugees, internally displaced persons, and others affected by natural disasters and conflict in order to more effectively manage health crises in emergency settings.
The program is held at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health for two weeks, annually in January, and requires pre-coursework to be completed online in the preceding December.
The Summer Institute will be held July 13-31, 2015 and applications are due no later than June 20, 2015.
More information about the course can be found at the Center for Refugee and Disaster Response website dedicated to the HELP Course.
