Frequently Asked Questions

Is the course available as on online course?

Given the complexity of the topic and the high demand in the region, we developed the course as a face-to-face course so far because the interaction between trainers and participants has a high value. The course will not be offered online at the moment.

Where is this course different from other eHealth courses?

There are no other short courses geared for digital health POLICY developers and advisers.

The course focuses on the foundational issues that enable effective digital health. It is based on practical knowledge of key digital health issues, in particular: understanding how digital health strengthens health systems, developing digital health strategies, enabling digital health systems to work together, and managing behavioural change. The combination of the practical and policy experience of the trainers, together with what participants bring from their national and local experiences provides a unique blend.

Is the course 4 or 5 days?

The course is for 5 days. On the fifth day, in the afternoon, we will leave time for sightseeing and shopping.
