THE MASTER OF ADVANCED STUDIES IN HUMANITARIAN ACTION IS A MODULAR FULL-TIME PROGRAMME OF 60 ECTS CREDITS (to be completed in 1 to 3 years)
This one-week short course provides mid-level and senior managers with the knowledge and skills required to understand the particular challenges presented by chronic diseases in emergency and/or unstable settings; and to conceive a programme to address chronic diseases adapted to specific contexts and as an integral part of health programmes. Humanitarian staff are often confronted with chronic diseases, particularly when crises hit populations from middle-income countries and in urban settings.
Actors of development or actors in humanitarian organizations, are you interested in developing the dialogue with communities in a strategic way? Would you like to deepen your knowledge in intercultural communication? Are you curious about the importance of accountability and the present limits of 2-way communication? This short course will be of interest for you.
Humanitarian organisations and workers are repeatedly being targeted or directly affected by the crisis they are responding to. Working in volatile and sometimes dangerous environments entails a need to be properly equipped to respond to an eventual crisis.
This course will focus on your response as a manager in pre-crisis, crisis and post-crisis when members of your team are targeted or directly affected in cases of abduction, epidemics and disasters triggered by natural hazards.
Neglecting sexual and reproductive health in acute, protracted and chronically underfunded crisis situations has potentially serious consequences. It is essential for the survival and well-being of populations affected by crises that emergency and recovery responses include life-saving sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services integrated into primary health care services.
