The GICHD is concerned by the current rapid escalation of the COVID-19 situation. The health and safety of our staff, their families, the communities we live in and those we might access through our operations represent our utmost priority. At this time, our workshops and trainings have been postponed and we are looking at alternative ways to conduct some of these remotely, where the conditions allow and are appropriate. We will do our utmost to ensure business continuity.

Should you have any questions with regards to workshops and training, please email us at training(at)

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
