Global health

Red Crescent volunteers learn First Aid techniques at a workshop organised by the Iraqi Red Crescent and International Federation. November 2002.

This pioneering collaboration between HCRI at The University of Manchester and the IFRC means we can deliver practical and affordable online postgraduate teaching in global health to the humanitarian sector around the world.

This online programme covers issues related to the worldwide improvement of health, the reduction of disparities, and protection against global threats that disregard national borders and is unique in bringing together the study of emergency medicine, disaster management, community health, anthropology and the sociology of health and illness. As such it offers both a practical means of study and an inclusive approach which mirrors the reality of health interventions within a humanitarian context.

The programme will extend the knowledge base and develop the practical skills of current and future practitioners in global health.

The programme will take 1 year to complete with the 1st cohort starting 16 April 2012.
