Inspired by potential benefits of Open Educational Resources (OER), over 40 faculty and staff representing eight health science institutions from across Africa came together and established the African Health OER Network (OER Africa). The Network seeks to enable participants to develop, adapt and share health education resources to augment limited human and other resources in the health sector and impact positively on overall health provision. The OER Africa aims to strengthen the intellectual and policy infrastructure within and between African institutions and beyond. The Network advances health education in Africa by using OER to share knowledge, address curriculum gaps, and support communities around health education.
In the Courseware, Research & Policies section, OER Africa and other partners research is available.
