Teaching materials

 

Developing and distributing whenever possible free, up-to-date and evidence-based medical teaching materials is at the core of our approach. Together with ALSG (Advanced Life Support Group) we have produced a number of medical educational materials for our projects to improve maternal and child health.

 

AN E-LIBRARY OF MATERNAL, NEONATAL AND CHILD HEALTHCARE VIDEOS AND PUBLICATIONS RELEVANT TO LOW INCOME HOSPITAL SETTINGS

Our latest project involves a regularly (every 3 months) updated E Library of > 300 videos, textbooks, manuals and presentations on maternal, neonatal and child healthcare that has been developed.

 

To look at the contents of this library as of updates by April 2016  please read here.

 

Recognising the major difficulties of adequate internet download speeds in low income countries, especially in rural areas, this E library is provided free of charge on a 32 GB USB stick to frontline health workers in public hospitals in low income countries.
