“The University of Oslo has for 25 years worked on building capacity for local adaptation of the District Health Information Software and other information technologies in the health sector in close cooperation with the Ministries of Health in more than 50 countries in Africa and Asia. The Health Information Systems Programme in the University has been training practitioners on software configuration and implementation, and educated students and academics to become health information systems specialists and researchers.

The University of Oslo therefore considers BETTEReHEALTH as an excellent vehicle for strengthening the capacity building and reaching further out, and to North Africa in particular.”
