Certificate in Introduction to Hygiene Promotion in Emergencies

Africa Training Institute is pleased to announce a Certificate Course in Introduction to Hygiene Promotion in Emergencies. This is both an online and Distance Learning Course, which starts 1st of every month.

Overall Course Overview
"In Haiti we brainstormed, ‘what makes a good toilet?’ with small groups of people. Factors included: a seat with a lid, a solid structure made from wood, that it can be locked, cleanliness, toilet paper and hand washing facilities. It isn’t rocket science, but we need to ensure that we are aware
of these things in our planning.” - Paul O'Sullivan, Hygiene Promoter, Red Cross

This course provides an introduction to hygiene promotion in emergencies, covering the main methods and approaches, and will provide a good overview of the community engagement aspect of WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) programming. Introduction to Hygiene Promotion in Emergencies is a participatory workshop, which uses a mixture of theory and practical group work.

The course explores the fundamentals of hygiene promotion in emergency environments. You will look at methods of hygiene behavior change, community engagement and facilitation, and how to ensure that affected populations are fully integrated in the WASH responses that your organization implements.
