International Medical Corps was awarded a five year sub-grant from Emory University under the Emergency Training for Response and Improved Nutrition (E-TRAIN) grant to implement a Nutrition in Emergencies (NiE) pilot course. The course was implemented with the Emory Rollins School of Public Health, Center for Humanitarian Emergencies. The course aimed at increasing the knowledge of participants on nutrition needs in humanitarian contexts in a holistic integrated manner. The course discussed the humanitarian system and the role of the nutrition cluster; causes of malnutrition in emergencies by vulnerable groups; nutrition needs assessment and analysis; prevention and treatment of malnutrition in its different forms including micronutrient deficiencies, infant and young child feeding in emergencies (IYCF-E), and community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM); the linkages between nutrition and food security and livelihoods (FSL) including food and cash assistance; integration between nutrition and health and WASH; social behavior change (SBC) in emergencies; logistics of emergency nutrition; and monitoring & evaluation (M&E) of responses to nutrition in emergencies. In the second year of the grant, International Medical Corps is responsible for translating the course materials in to Arabic.
