Emory University is a contributing member of the PAATCHH Consortium. The School of Public Health has offered courses focusing on humanitarian emergency responses since 2002, and currently offers five courses: Health in Complex Emergencies, Epidemiological Methods in Complex Humanitarian Emergencies, Mental Health in CHEs, Global Planning for CHEs, and Food and Nutrition in Humanitarian Emergencies. 114 students completed these courses in 2011. The School of Public Health offers a certificate program that includes education through the courses listed above, hands on training, and a research component.

Emory University is also committed to forming both domestic and international partnerships. The university partners with the International Emergency and Refugee Health Branch at the CDC and collaborates with USAID programs and NGOs around the world. The university also forms new international relationships through a fellowship program. The fellowship program sponsors a Fellow from a resource-constrained country to come to Emory and earn a Masters in Public Health with a focus on humanitarian emergency response. Emory University realizes the PAATCHH mission through its commitments to education, training, research, and collaborative partnerships.
