Description

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the humanitarian crisis in Syria and the most recent series of earthquakes in Nepal are just some examples of emergencies the World Health Organization (WHO) have sent their response staff and other experts on missions to save lives and prevent disease. Because working in these places is both very dangerous and very hard, WHO provides regular and intense training prior to deploying them. Watch this video to see what the Emergency Communications Boot camp for candidates of the WHO’s Emergency Communications Network have to go through to prepare for these tough missions.
