Introduction: Samuel Senait, Ethiopia: Greeting from Jimma, Ethiopia

1 November, 2022

Dear all HIFA members,

Am very interested in HIFA and the scholars who posted their findings on it.

I published many articles in previous years on health and information.

Let me tell you about my career, am a lecturer in the faculty of computing and informatics and a Ph.D. fellow at Jimma University Ethiopia, and my research interest is health informatics in the rural location of the Primary level healthcare unit. The majority of the Ethiopian population are living on the rural side and their first contact is PLHC including primary hospitals and health centers. Despite this fact, there is a lack of attention from both donors and the government side in the provision of need-based health information for health professionals at PLHC.

so that, if you have any interesting work with me, please let me know

Let me share my articles with you
