Join MEASURE Evaluation on February 17 and 24, 2020 at 8am EST for a two-part webinar series, 120 minutes each, to explore how to facilitate the routine health information system (RHIS) e-learning curriculum available here. This self-paced curriculum is adapted from a workshop-based global standard RHIS curriculum developed with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) by MEASURE Evaluation with worldwide partners.

To facilitate sustained learning, MEASURE Evaluation collaborated with USAID's Advancing Partners and Communities (APC) Health Management Information System (HMIS) Scale-Up project in Ethiopia, which developed e-learning modules on this RHIS curriculum to meet the needs of HMIS capacity building in the country. The e-learning curriculum enables learners to train intermittently, repeatedly, and for a duration that accommodates their schedules. The webinars will be led by Wendy Dufour, MEd, with JSI; Tariq Azim, MBBS, DCM, with MEASURE Evaluation, JSI; and Derek Kunaka, MSc, with MEASURE Evaluation, JSI.

Research has shown that having access to a facilitator improves the results of e-learning. During the webinars, we will share methods for how to facilitate the course online in order to motivate learners, encourage participation, make the course relevant to learners’ contexts, and promote peer learning.

By the end of the webinar series, participants will have learned how to facilitate the RHIS course online to build RHIS capacities of staff at national, intermediate, and facility levels; policymakers and senior managers; and care providers and health technicians. The eight modules are based on successful workshop-based training and provide standardized content and assessments on basic RHIS concepts such as indicators, data quality, and data demand and use.

Recommended participants are trainers, program and human resources managers, lecturers, and staff responsible for capacity building for RHIS in the public sector. There will be a short independent assignment (two-hour time commitment) to be completed between the webinars, with support available. Certificates will be provided for participants who attend the webinars and complete the assignment.

The webinar recordings will be available online following the events.
