Fellowship

The Emory University Center for Humanitarian Emergencies (CHE) offers a one year Fellowship for mid-career professionals from low- and middle-income countries affected by conflict. The CHE fellowship builds the capacity of non-US based responders in the event of complex humanitarian emergencies through training in epidemiology, rapid health assessment, surveillance, surveys, data analysis, monitoring and evaluation and a collaborative operations research project. CHE fellows participate in the one year accelerated MPH program and receive a certificate in humanitarian emergencies.

Past fellows have gone one to work for UN organizations, International NGOs, and in academia. Most recently, former fellows Gedi A. Mohamed and Edna Moturi’s article “Etiology and Incidence of Viral Acute Respiratory Infections Among Refugees 5 Years and Older in Hagadera Camp, Dadaab, Kenya” was published by the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
