Health and Humanitarian Logistics Training

Positively impacting humanitarian response through improved processes.

Humanitarian logistics encompasses a broad range of activities related to preparing, responding to, and recovering from natural and man-made disasters, as well as ongoing humanitarian crises due to war, famine, and infectious diseases. In humanitarian organizations, inefficiencies in preparation, response, or recovery can result in unintended consequences, including the loss of lives. These challenging logistics and supply chain management problems require specific knowledge and training for effective action in humanitarian operations.

The Georgia Tech Health and Humanitarian Logistics Center is offering a new professional certificate program focused on Health and Humanitarian Logistics.

  • The executive learning program is designed for practitioners in non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government, industry, and military who are active participants in humanitarian relief operations.
  • Courses are taught by world-renowned, award winning industry experts. Learn more about the instructors below.
  • New logistics concepts and strategies will help you improve decision making in preparedness, response, and system design.
  • Courses will be offered in a blended format combining face-to-face and online interactive tools.
