Work On! is an occasional item about workshops, roundtables, and other fora that do not necessarily include publication:
► The Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna is offering a training course on “Health Systems through Crisis Recovery” on April 9-20, 2018, at their campus in Pisa, Italy. Deadline to apply is February 20, 2018. (An early bird discount is reserved for candidates applying before January 8, 2018.)
The volatility and complexity of conflict and post-conflict contexts pose daunting challenges to health workers – both national and international – who are called to rehabilitate derelict health structures. Lack of properly prepared professionals in this field has often resulted in reconstruction efforts characterized by weak analysis, little understanding, inadequate planning, and poor implementation. This training programme intends to alleviate this gap.
The course is taught in English. It focuses on health issues, but it is open to professionals from other disciplines. Applicants must have a university degree or the equivalent of 3 years of relevant working experience, and a sound working knowledge of English. For more details, click here.
