NURHI Distance Education Videos for Providers

Date of Publication

NURHI (the Nigerian Urgan Health Initiative) launched the Interactive Health Education (iHED) system in November 2013 to provide a platform from which providers (midwives and doctors), primarily within family planning clients and integration points, can access relevant video-based educational content and resources from Android based smart phones or tablets.

The discovery of a high prevalence of myths, misconceptions and provider biases during the NURHI midline evaluation helped direct video development to help improve provider knowledge and performance. Some of the videos portray an "unsupportive" counselor as compared to a "supportive" one.
