Abstract

Recognizing the importance and need to use Information and Communication Technology within its health projects in Sub-Saharan Africa, the European ESTHER Alliance developed a joint ICT & Health Strategy with representatives from France, Germany, Ireland, Norway, Portugal and Switzerland. The present study aims to assess the needs in continuous education and the quality of eLearning tools used in health facilities in European ESTHER Alliance partner countries, both in Europe and Africa. The report presents an assessment of the current e-Learning environment; the opportunities and challenges of further developing specific e-Learning methods in the health facility setting; the continuous education needs of healthcare professionals and other hospital personnel; the current and future interest and capacity in further developing e-Learning initiatives; the state of cooperation between partner institutions; and the state of IT and internet access and use.
