The Humanitarian University Consortium (ProMED:ISID: Announcements

support the development of initiatives associated with economic,
social, cultural and humanitarian issues worldwide. Our mission
is to serve as (1) an
international community of scholars, (2) a bridge between Humanitarian
Institute and the international academic community, (3) a think tank in
support of the United Nations programs and (4) the promotion of higher
through both traditional and distance education.
2010, the Humanitarian Intervention Initiative (H-II) was established
to support strategic planning, development and stabilization of
humanitarian emergencies that are beyond the operational capacities of
the United Nations, non-governmental and relief organizations. This
focus includes Expanding Special Protective Forces for Humanitarian
