Concern Worldwide is organizing this program, in consortium with International Medical Corps (IMC) and the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI) and with technical support from Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health. This National NGO Program on Humanitarian Leadership (NNPHL), was formerly the Program on Humanitarian Leadership(PHL). The Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) is funding this program.
