Communities in Humanitarian Settings:
Micro-formations COVID-19

Welcome to READY’s Communities in Humanitarian Settings: COVID-19 Micro-Trainings! The goal of the training package is to improve the capacity of NGOs to implement community-centered COVID-19 pandemic response approaches in humanitarian settings and increase awareness of how such approaches impact the overall response. Across three modules focusing on different components of a community-level response—risk communication and community engagement (RCCE), infection prevention and control (IPC) and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH); and community health programming (CHP)—this training addressed the challenges of a community-centered COVID-19 response approach, and provided practical tools and solutions grounded in the experiences of current COVID-19 response actors across the globe.
