The Millennium Development Goals, and now the Sustainable Development Goals – as well as the WHO’s efforts to promote measurement of country-level health indicators – has underscored the need for students of public health, information systems and information technology to be able to manage and interpret large data sets.
The main goal of this project was to increase the quality and relevance of education in health information systems at the universities of Oslo and the Western Cape, and at Nelson Mandela University. This was done through developing joint educational material on global health information systems, supporting student mobility and fostering collaboration between academic institutions.
The project is was supported through a year grant from the Norwegian Centre for International Co-operation in Education (SIU), and was undertaken in collaboration with the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and the Health Information Systems Program, South Africa (HISP-SA).
