The Program on Education in Crisis at the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative seeks to advance the science of education in conflict through innovative, collaborative and multidisciplinary research. The team works to bridge educational capacity into sustainability, during and after crises. The program’s Health Education in Conflict Needs Assessment Toolkit Project aims to develop and pilot an open source Toolkit that provides a systematic method and framework for identifying needs and strategic priorities for maintaining health education in all three major phases of conflict and post-conflict settings: emergency, transition, and development. Secondary goals included wide dissemination of theToolkit, and promotion of knowledge and awareness of key issues among local faculty partners, humanitarian practitioners, and academics.
