In response to widespread campus closure globally due to the COVID-19 pandemic and as part of the knowledge transfer endeavour of the Collaborating Centre for Oxford University and CUHK for Disaster and Medical Humanitarian Response (CCOUC), a free video-based Chinese online course “Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response: The Application of Sphere Standards” is now open for registration until 31 July 2020 at Xuetangx (学堂在线) platform. Upon registration, students are allowed to study the course at a safe location and at their own pace in a duration of 12 weeks. The course will be very useful for students and practitioners to explore the Geneva-based international Sphere organisation and its globally recognized minimum standards for humanitarian response.


As the first Sphere Focal Point for China, CCOUC has developed this course as the world's first of its kind to introduce the Sphere standards in Simplified Chinese and Mandarin. Not only highly recognized but also rich in content and easily comprehensible, this course can greatly help foster the understanding of Sphere standard-guided humanitarian practice and improve the level of disaster and humanitarian relief in China.


Organized in five lessons, this course systematically explains the main contents and practice of the Sphere standards. Lesson 1 is the introduction of the Sphere organisation. It includes the origin, core beliefs, humanitarian charter, protection principles and core humanitarian standards of the organisation. Lessons 2 to 5 are technical chapters, which focus on the four technical chapters in the latest 2018 Sphere handbook, including water supply, sanitation and hygiene promotion; food security and nutrition; shelter and resettlement; and health.
