Live, in-person course January 2-12: The Health Emergencies in Large Populations (HELP) course is offered by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in joint collaboration with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. For more than 20 years, the HELP course has offered humanitarian workers an intensive training experience in public health principles and disaster epidemiology. The aim of the HELP course is to equip participants with the basic skills and competencies to enable them to respond to the public health needs of populations in emergency situations.
