Center for Global Health’s Pediatrics in Disasters Training Program Revised to Address Rising Needs of Refugees, Displaced Populations and Children Caught in High Conflict Areas

The Pediatrics in Disasters (PEDs) training program, which trains healthcare and humanitarian workers to prioritize life-saving care for children in disasters, has been revised to focus more directly on sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East – where there has been an increase in conflict, refugees and displaced populations.

The Center for Global Health in partnership with Children’s Colorado developed the PEDs training curriculum to be taken online or in person. Learn more.
