The programme investigates current approaches to humanitarian health programme management and identifies and develops models of good practice. Opportunities for in-depth study include regional and country case studies and a choice of modules addressing specific aspects of humanitarian interventions. In addition, the programme offers participants an opportunity to develop and undertake a research project, usually overseas, in an area of special interest indicated by client Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), International Organisations (IOs) or National Ministries.
This programme aims to strengthen links between academic institutions and operational humanitarian organisations. The skills, knowledge and understanding of humanitarian issues gained during the programme equip graduates to manage humanitarian health programmes for NGOs, IOs and Ministries at a senior level.
