APHES - Assessing Public Health in Emergency Situations

This two-week course aims to familiarize professionals with epidemiological techniques to determine impacts of disasters and conflicts.  The course introduces participants to the methods and tools of epidemiology in the context of humanitarian emergencies and also covers the different uses of quantitative tools for the assessment of health needs in populations affected by catastrophic events.

Topics covered include malnutrition, mortality, morbidity and population displacement.

The first week consists of theoretical presentations on how to assess impacts of disasters and conflicts on human health, along with presentations of relevant tools. During the second week, practical case-studies are presented, developed and analyzed using tools from week one. The course is given by CRED staff and by experienced international experts.

The evaluation is based on the preparation by each student of a case-study presentation that will illustrate the concepts taught during the course.

A university certificate and 10 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) are awarded to students who successfully complete the course and evaluation.
