The Health Ambassadors Programme

Health providers from all sectors; maternity health, general/specialised nurses, working with disabilities, sexual health, malaria, mental health etc., are welcome to apply. As eLearning Africa moves year to year across Africa, this programme will follow and be implemented in the country where the conference is located. The programme will support health providers from each of the counrty's different regions to try and ensure diversity and to overcome the rural-urban divide. The participant would be active in their field, part-time or full-time, to function as 'ICT ambassadors' for their organisation and region. The participants should also have basic ICT-skills.

The programme offers to cover travel costs to and from the conference where funding circumstances allow, registration fee waiver and a pre-conference workshop. Except for the opportunity to network with stakeholders within their sector, the participants will acquire the latest within ICT in relation to their sector.

As soon as the participants have been chosen, they will prepare for the conference by networking and getting ready for the conference by looking up useful info about ICT and health and pick conference sessions that would be interesting for their work. This would also be the time to prepare their own questions and develop aims specific to their work. There would also be a pre-conference workshop provided where the participants would get to know each other and through different exercises prepare themselves for the conference. Here it would be possible for the participants to prepare questions to be answered during the conference as part of preparing an outline for an action plan after the conference and to discuss what workshops or sessions could be relevant for their work. Also, this is a place to figure out how to network with potential partners.

On site tasks would be to attend the pre-conference workshop, sessions relevant to their work, integrate with potential partners networking and taking notes for the action plan and possibly lead their own session. After the conference, the participants will provide a post-conference report, with an outline of an action plan about what policies are needed in their region to improve or initiate ICT in their field of work and what could be done for these to be reached.

To request an application form, please email application@easttrust.org. Application deadline: January 4, 2016.
