HI-TRAIN: Better Health Information for better health care

Establishing self-sustainable, replicable and scalable Health Informatics training and research programmes through institutional collaboration in East Africa

Content

The project will aim to develop capacity at Moi University and Makerere University to deliver education programs and research in order to strengthen the e-Health (electronic health) systems in Kenya and Uganda. In order to produce reliable and important information and new knowledge about the health situation in these countries, development of human capacities and research within this area is essential and research practicums will be a core part of the HI-TRAIN Masters and PhD programs. This will assist governments and health scientists to produce policies that will help improve individual and population health care, first and foremost in Kenya and Uganda, but it could also have impact on the entire East Africa in the long run.
