The PATH-JSI DMPA-SC Access Collaborative <https://fpoptions.org/topics/ac-lan/> invites you to a virtual exchange on eLearning for health workers learning to counsel clients on DMPA-SC self-injection in Senegal and Uganda. During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, this approach was launched and evaluated in four regions of Senegal and four districts in Uganda.
Using eLearning to train health workers on family planning counseling can be an effective training approach, particularly when carefully planned and coordinated to maximize the benefits. The findings and recommendations from this experience may offer lessons for other countries wishing to implement digital learning approaches. The presenters will raise important considerations about stakeholder coordination, internet and technology access, eLearning platforms, establishing training targets, training content, and the important role of post-training supervision.
