The Graduate Certificate of Humanitarian Health aims to equip suitably qualified health professionals with essential competencies, skills and knowledge to provide health care in resource poor and complex environments, in particular to vulnerable groups. The identified vulnerable groups include pregnant and lactating women or of childbearing age, people vulnerable to violence, and sexual or gender‐based violence (SGBV), and people living with mental illness and chronic diseases, such as HIV and diabetes.

The course will consist of four, one credit point units across two-trimesters. This part time course will be delivered wholly online, aligning to Deakin’s innovative cloud based learning principles.

The GCHH will enable students to diversify their professional career options providing an academic avenue which will equip students to be skilled health practitioners in the field of humanitarian health. Students will have access to experts, leaders, thinkers and researchers from within the humanitarian sector, providing a unique mix of theory, practice and reflection, drawing upon a combination of academic and practice knowledge methodologies using a cloud based mode of learning.

Enrolled students may be eligible for part scholarships from low to middle income countries.  Incorporated in the course is a mentoring program which will link students with practitioners in the sector and the donor, Glaxo Smith-Kline, to enhance their learning outcomes.

Applications open now for Trimester 1 2018 commencement in March 2018.
