H.E.L.P. Course: Objectives

The Objectives of HELP are to equip participants to respond to the public health needs of populations in emergency situations. These include the areas of planning, epidemiological assessment, control of communicable diseases, information and surveillance systems, environmental sanitation methods, and meeting nutritional requirements in refugee situations. The course will provide an understanding of other issues of displaced populations, including the protection of vulnerable groups, building human security, and meeting the mental health needs of affected populations. The coursework and course materials will emphasize the link between human rights, human security, and technical components of disaster response.
