Chitambo computing workshop

Zambian project partners have been running an Information and Computer Technology (ICT) workshop at Chitambo all of this week (November 23rd to 27th).  This as part of our Small Grant project on 'Strengthening emergency care communication in the Chitambo District'.  This project is sponsored by the Scottish Government and has covered a lot of valuable ground in the first 6 months.

The aim of this November workshop was to enable Chitambo Hospital and Rural Health Centre (RHC) clinical staff to make best use of the  emergency care resources supplied by the project and to communicate for support on emergency are matters.

Chitambo Hospital Information Officer, Mr. Vincent Kole, created this Facebook page to initiate dialogue: Click here to see

He and Mr. Consider Mudenda, ICT Expert and In-country Project Lead, have now initiated a further, closed emergency care discussion group and a WhatsApp discussion/support group.  The workshop students have been introduced to all these groups and have been chatting on them today.
