Affinity partner description
Humanitarian U was founded in 2011 in
response to the need to increase the preparedness and effectiveness of
humanitarian aid workers in disaster situations. Humanitarian U does
this by providing competency-based, accessible, affordable,
high-quality, performance-measured online training courses made by
humanitarians for humanitarians. Humanitarian U works collaboratively to
leverage the expertise and ideas of specialized technical and
educational partners in addition to those in the humanitarian sector to
provide maximum accessibility and usability for humanitarian aid workers
around the globe and to promote best practices and recognized standards
for performance in humanitarian action.
Healthcare providers have their own skill sets unique to their
respective practice. However, these are not enough. Working in a dynamic
humanitarian environment necessitates an entirely different set of
competencies. These globally recognized competencies are what is offered
in Humanitarian U's Healthcare Provider Program.
