Humanitarian water engineering course

New course launched by the Dahdaleh Institute to advance technical knowledge of water engineering in humanitarian response. 

The Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research is launching a new Humanitarian Water Engineering Intensive Course this Fall. The course is an opportunity to gain practical knowledge of the design, construction, and operation of water supply systems in emergencies. It will cover both the theoretical fundamentals and the practical considerations of providing safe water, from source to consumer, in humanitarian contexts.

Desde CAWST estamos planificando un curso virtual sobre la herramienta Wash´Em como parte de nuestra alianza con la London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine y Action Contre la Faim y financiado por USAID.

¿Qué es Wash´Em?

Wash'Em es una herramienta para personal humanitario, diseñada para crear programas efectivos de promoción de lavado de manos basados en la evidencia y el contexto de forma rápida.

Wash’Em cuenta de dos etapas: la primera es la recopilación de información en terreno a través de las herramientas de evaluación rápida; la segunda es introducir los resultados en el software de la plataforma para generar recomendaciones del tipo de actividades de promoción de lavado de manos más apropiadas para su contexto específico.

Este curso les permitirá conocer con estas herramientas de evaluación y generación de recomendaciones y ponerlas en práctica.
