ROLES

Christian Health Service Corps is excited to offer this continuing education course based on the Sphere Handbook as a Pre-Conference before the 2021 Global Missions Health Conference in Louisville, KY.

Course Description:
Learn how to respond to humanitarian crises! Daily headlines of disasters and crises can overwhelm or prompt us to action. In this program you will gain resources to put principles into practice, engage with coordinated relief efforts, minister to affected populations, and maintain resilience.

This program empowers participants to effectively contribute to global response efforts through knowledge and application of life-saving and dignity-upholding measures as outlined in the Sphere Handbook: Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response. Developed by the international response community, the Sphere Handbook puts affected populations and the right to life with dignity at the center of humanitarian response.

Interactive sessions contextualize the Sphere universal minimum standards, key actions, and key indicators and cover four core life-saving areas: water supply, sanitation and hygiene promotion (WASH), food security and nutrition, shelter and settlement, and health.

Registration and Logistics:
This course is held at Southeast Christian Church, 920 Blankenbaker Parkway, Louisville, KY 40243. This course precedes the Global Missions Health Conference.
