New Module on Nutrition in Emergencies Introduced in Uganda

The Makerere University School of Public Health has recently introduced a new Masters in Public Health Nutrition (MPHN).  The first intake of students are now starting the second year of their course in Kampala.

As part of the Nutrition in Emergencies Regional Training Project, we have been working with the University to develop and implement a module on Nutrition in Emergencies and deliver that as part of the new MSc . Following work on curriculum and materials development the module was run for the first time in September 2010. The photo below shows some of the students hard at work during a session on programme M&E.

The MSc is primarily targeted at Ugandan students and is intended to prepare them for working in a range of roles in nutrition in the country. For more information on the School of Public Health and their courses please click here...
