Mobile Training Content for Frontline Health Workers


Carolyn Moore, mPowering Frontline Health Workers
Alex Little, mPowering Frontline Health Workers

mPowering Frontline Health Workers will present ORB, a new and unique online content repository. ORB offers frontline health workers and trainers access to quality assured, open source RMNCH health training content that can be used and shared on mobile devices. ORB adds value to frontline health worker training in three ways: (1) improves access to quality content; (2) accelerates potential to scale mHealth training; and (3) reduces duplication of effort (and wasted money) in content development.  We will demonstrate how the training resources can be delivered to health workers on mobile devices for use on or offline. Participants will be invited to use their own mobiles to (1) browse resources on the site; (2) identify relevant content for a country, health worker cadre, or health topic; (3) download resources; and (4) upload resources onto the site. This will be a highly interactive session, including time for questions and answers.
