Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPHA) course by RedR Australia

This course is an ideal choice for humanitarian practitioners and those entering the sector that have an interest and commitment to child protection, and want to increase their knowledge of how children can be affected in humanitarian action. The course will broaden participants’ understanding of child protection within the broader humanitarian system, and equip them with CPHA tools and strategies to apply in the field.

This intermediate-level course is ideal for people already involved or likely to be involved in child protection in emergencies programming, as a coordinator, practitioner and/or decision maker. It is expected that participants will already have a sound understanding of general child protection issues and an awareness of the risk factors that increase children's vulnerability in humanitarian action.
