Strongly recommend to those who want to start their career in Humanitarian Health and want to get a solid background in the field. Of course not everything is covered but it provides an excellent foundation.

As a humanitarian clinician ,learning some public health aspects is worthy and has helped me to understand so many issues related to my current work in the field.
Eg: The clinical care is for individual or person interests and the public heath approach is for the population interest in general.

To me the course has designed in such a way that it is suitable for any person to get a basic understanding on the complexity to respond a humanitarian crisis. Professor Gilbert, Professor Spiegel, Professor Ververs, Professor Robert and Ms Jana Mason have made the course interesting, entertaining and they have engaged me with practical experiences which helped me to understand or conceptualize the complex issues around Humanitarian Crisis. I am glad that I have got the opportunity to go through the course and I feel I have had a solid foundation on the basic problems during humanitarian crisis and how I can put myself

It was indeed a privilege to learn about Public Health in Humanitarian Crises-1 from the renowned John Hopkins University. PHHC addressed the broad issues that can affect the public health and healthcare system during a disaster and how as a public health professional we need to handle the situation. This course provided a solid foundation on issues that impact the population health and healthcare system during an emergency. I am now pursuing Public Health in Humanitarian Crises-2 for because I am confident that this learnings will help me to redefine my work.
Thanks to John Hopkins Team and Coursera.
Being International Civil Servant, I had a privilege on working on various projects for countries in emergency situations. For me the course is a great Opportunity to learn and strengthen my knowledge in the field. Many things I was doing without better knowledge, now with what I learned through the course, I will be more efficient on work.
Really appreciate the Lecturers, they have done a great work. Thanks

THANK YOU JOHNS HOPKINS AND THE LECTURES WHO PUT THIS INSIGHTFUL KNOWLEDGE OUT FOR US,IT IS AN EYE OPENING TO KNOW WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS TO PEOPLE,WHAT SOME HUMANS HAD TO GO THROUGH AT ONE POINT OR THE OTHER IN LIFE.
