We are grateful for the continued support from our donors, partners and the public in these uncertain times. We are adjusting how we work in line with the latest national government and World Health Organisation (WHO) guidance to ensure we keep everyone protected. GICHD staff will continue to work remotely to ensure business continuity as much as possible.

The GICHD has decided to open registrations for trainings and workshops that will take place this fall in Switzerland and require physical presence. These training and workshops are currently advertised on our training platform, The GICHD reserves the right to cancel or postpone these training and workshops should the situation change and no longer allow to organize them. In that case, the GICHD would inform the registered and accepted participants at least six weeks in advance of the event.

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

By standing together, we will continue to fulfill to the best of our ability our mission, while keeping the health and safety of our staff, their families, and the communities we serve.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
