Summary of Week 1

We have now reached the end of Week 1. By now you should have a clearer understanding of the different types of humanitarian crises and the health needs of populations when faced with such catastrophic events.

Next week we will look at humanitarian interventions and focus on the implementation of humanitarian health programming. We will explore how we work in crisis settings, the ways in which we plan our responses, sector-specific aspects of health service delivery, and how we go about conducting research and gathering data to inform and improve our future practice.

The activities are available to view now, but if you decide to review them early you may want to return to the comments and discussions while the week is live to see the perspectives of other learners and to offer your own.

At the end of each week we collate the key thoughts, themes, and any questions from your conversations in a summary document added to the Downloads section at the bottom of this page. Additionally, all of these resources are available on the School’s Open Study Platform.
