The overall learning outcomes are designed to enable participants to:
a. Facilitate the adaptation of a health cluster coordination presence at sub-national level following a significant escalation of health needs within a protracted emergency setting, such as in the situation of an IASC Humanitarian System-Wide Scale-Up and/or Scale-Up Protocol for the Control of an Infectious Disease Event;
b. Implement the advocacy functions of the Heath Cluster Team to ensure humanitarian principles are respected, particularly in contested contexts;
c. Demonstrate commitment towards mobilizing partnership, networks and inter cluster collaboration in seeking positive and meaningful health interventions for those in need;
d. Draw information from multiple sources to facilitate joint analysis as a foundation for making effective plans and decisions within a health emergency response.
e. Harness the roles that each stakeholder can play in support of the Health Cluster’s six (6) core functions using a dynamic and partner-centric coordination approach;
f. Tailor the use of global Health Cluster standards, guidelines and tools to enable an effective response as befits the national and local context;
g. Construct appropriate relationships between the Health Cluster and other coordination mechanisms (e.g. HEOCs), as well as other clusters;
h. Use information services effectively at key points of the humanitarian programme cycle to influence and persuade others in taking appropriate action;
i. Apply good practice in dealing with a broad range of specific Health Cluster coordination and leadership challenges.
