What We Do
Emory University's Center for Humanitarian Emergencies is committed to building the global capacity of trained and skilled emergency responders. As part of our ongoing programming, CHE offers training to a diverse audience base and in increasingly diverse platforms.
Dedicated to engaging students at every level, the Center for Humanitarian Emergencies offers a participatory course for Emory University undergraduate students.
The Rollins School of Public Health in partnership with CDC's Emergency Response and Recovery Branch offers a Graduate Certificate in Humanitarian Emergencies.
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.
To engage new audiences such as midcareer professionals, CHE@Emory harnesses the innovative technologies of new online platforms such as Coursera to expand course content. Worldwide, thousands of participants are freely accessing top quality Emory University courses.
In collaboration with the Global Response Preparedness Team (GRPT) within ERRB, CHE offers our certificate students short term summer placements in CDC offices working on preparedness and emergency planning in emergency prone contexts.
Center for Humanitarian Emergency faculty, staff and students are actively pursuing research in the areas of GIS for mosquito abatement and Zika prevention, capacity building, sexual and reproductive health, and nutrition in emergencies. Additional research projects at CHE@Emory include Ebola preparedness, and conflict as a social determinant of health.
The Humanitarian Emergencies Research Team (HERT) was founded in 2013 and aims to provide students with an opportunity to collaborate with public health professionals and contribute to research projects related to Complex Humanitarian Emergencies (CHEs).
Through close collaboration with numerous partners, the Center for Humanitarian Emergencies at Emory is able to access an extensive base of technical capacity and resources to train students and develop broader organizational goals.
