COVID-19 Ethiopia is the official FMoH Health Worker learning app supported by the Community Health Academy – Last Mile Health using the OppiaMobile platform technology.
The target audience for this app are all Frontline Health Workers in Ethiopia: nurses, health officers, physicians, volunteers working in health facilities and other health service delivery points set up for COVID-19 across all 11 regions.
Once COVID-19 Ethiopia is downloaded onto a smart phone or tablet, the training content is readily available for use offline. Users earn points for engagement with the course content, and badges when they complete a course. When a course is updated, users are automatically notified that a new version is available, so they can keep their course content up-to-date.
This new version of the training app has already been uploaded on hundreds of tablets that are being distributed by the FMOH to COVID-19 response teams. The official courses and materials offered on the COVID-19-Ethiopia platform are: Surveillance; Case Management; Laboratory; Infection Prevention and Control; Risk Communication and Community Engagement and COVID-19 handbook for Health Workers.
OppiaMobile is an open source mobile learning platform specially designed for delivering learning content such as multimedia and quizzes in low-resource settings. Course content can be developed in Moodle and then exported to run offline on the OppiaMobile Android app.
Users can download the COVID-19 Ethiopia Training App from the Google Playstore.
