Policy Brief :Video Conference in FMOH

Dr. Nadia Abuzied


Video conferencing is the ability to host live interactive meetings by using Internet connectivity, a computer and a web camera. With video conferencing, training can now hold meetings with the participants being virtually anywhere in the country. As one of the developing  countries, Sudan faces immense shortcomings in developing human resource and an extreme lack of training in- services cadre.. The Ministry of health, the WHO, and other international donors provide CPD learning activities for health work   force involved in vertical programs through National training activities. The Sudan FMOH ranked CPD among top national priority areas for health sector development. In fact, intensive efforts were undertaken to institutionalize CPD for all major categories of health professions. Since the Videoconferencing is a cost effective method of facilitating live, interactive communication across different Efforts must be focused on video conference and on line training courses for immediate improvements in skill knowledge and attitude for the in service health cadre  .  Access to video conference services and increased education and empowerment of health cadre must be emphasized for sustainable progress. One of the challenges facing FMOH today is enabling employees to work productively while also ensuring the security of the IT network and, crucially, the data on it. Given that technology is continually changing, employees play a significant role in IT security. Efficiency of health services, decreasing running cost of services, avoids duplication in services by multi server, and Services sustainability. This policy conferencing services applies to all users of existing Sudan-States video as well as individuals or units   who desire to establish a video conferencing capability regardless of physical location. So advantages of video conferencing are, no time constraint, dramatic travel saving, easy communication: , increased productivity. And disadvantages of video conferencing are  lack of personal interaction, technical problems, international time zones, high cost of setup. We are very excited about the opportunities that this new direction and identity will bring. In my opinion, Video conferencing enables people from different place to communicate with each other in a more convenient way.
