Effective humanitarian health responses in disasters, conflict, and health crisis situations require practical skills and an applied knowledge of humanitarian health diplomacy principles and actions. Health interventions in the humanitarian space involve engaging in multiple levels and fora of diplomacy and therefore necessitate an awareness of the relevant systems and methods of health diplomacy involved. This course is designed to help develop the competencies of participants by deepening their understanding of core concepts and practical applications of humanitarian health diplomacy.
