HEAT in Ethiopia: training for frontline health workers

This training programme has both theoretical and practical parts. Written by African Health experts in collaboration with personnel from U.K’s Open University, it addresses priority areas such as: postnatal care, newborn and childhood illnesses.

The OU International Development Office has worked in close partnership with the Ethiopian Government, WHO and AMREF to develop the programme which was launched in Ethiopia in 2011. Currently discussions are under way to to replicate it in other sub-Saharan countries. Potential partners and funders should contact the Health Education And Training (HEAT) office.
