Recent disaster- and conflict-related crises have demonstrated the overwhelming need for skilled professionals who are able to respond adequately to complex emergencies.

The University of Copenhagen offers a blended learning course on Health in Emergencies aimed at professionals working, or aiming to work, with national or international emergency management agencies, relief organizations, national governments or the UN system.

In order to develop a solid base for action, the course offers a combination of state-of-the-art theoretical knowledge, familiarisation with the newest guidelines and agreed approaches, as well as practical exercises through group work.

The course aims at providing participants with an in-depth understanding of the complex range of issues involved in planning, implementing and accounting for health interventions in contemporary emergencies. This includes an understanding of the rapidly evolving humanitarian reform process, and the roles which may be taken by local, national and international partners.
