Commitment to Action

Next Generation Technology For Frontline Health Workers

Commitment by

Intrahealth International, Inc.

In 2012, IntraHealth committed to design a scalable e/mLearning Program in Kenya that employs technology solutions to provide quality training to frontline health workers. The current Kenyan health training system is unable to ensure that health workers, especially in remote, underserved areas, are routinely updated with the skills and knowledge needed to tackle health needs. Through partnerships with the Kenyan government, AMREF, and a variety of technology firms including iHub, Intel, and Medic Mobile, IntraHealth International employs locally designed and context appropriate technology solutions to improve the training of health workers who will provide much needed frontline healthcare services to two districts in Kenya, Kitui in Eastern Province and Kisumu in the Western Province.
