The Cross-Sectional Studies of Stress in National Humanitarian Aid Workers

Principal Investigator: Dr. Cynthia Eriksson

Project Description

It is generally agreed that 90% of all aid work is performed by individuals working in their own home setting. Therefore, in addition to the longitudinal study, the Antares research team has prioritized understanding the stresses inherent in the experience of aid workers employed or volunteering in their own national context. During the 2008-2009 academic year, the Headington Program faculty and students collaborated on national staff surveys in Amman, Jordan, and Gulu, Uganda.

Participating institutions are the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Atlanta, USA; University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Netherlands; Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, USA, Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, New Orleans, USA, and the Antares Foundation, Diemen, Netherlands.
