E-TRAIN: Emergency Training for Response and Improved Nutrition
Emergency Training for Response and Improved Nutrition (E-TRAIN) strengthens public health and nutrition global capacity for complex humanitarian emergencies response. E-TRAIN uses three approaches including open access Coursera courses, expansion of Nutrition in Emergencies (NiE) intensive training, and field based work experience to build sector capacities for emergency response. The program combines the teaching and research strengths of Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health with the applied technical skills of International Medical Corps (IMC), GOAL, and the Emergency Response and Recovery Branch (ERRB) of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC). E-TRAIN aims to build public health capacity in humanitarian emergencies and establish a cadre of skilled professionals specifically for surge capacity. At the conclusion of five years of implementation, E-TRAIN will be a fully functioning robust program and the preeminent training program in the nation for entry level and mid-career professionals seeking to improve their emergency response related sector skills.
