The MPH concentration in Health in Crisis and Humanitarian Assistance focuses on health of populations in crisis, internationally and domestically. These include refugees, internally displaced persons (IDPs), populations affected by natural and human-made disasters, victims of human rights abuse, and trafficked women and children. The coursework will focus on why populations become vulnerable and the health issues they face. Emphasis will be on gaining expertise in methods to assess needs and provide assistance to displaced populations and other vulnerable groups. Students will have the opportunity to select a focus in one of two tracks: Humanitarian Assistance (HA) or Health and Human Rights (HHR).
