Fiji : The Pacific Open Learning Health Net

The Pacific Open Learning Health Net (POLHN) has established 16 Open Learning Centers in hospitals and other health care institutions in 11 Pacific Island countries. Each center includes up to 20-networked computers, a server with Internet access, a data projector and screen, web cams, headsets, printers and digital and print health resources.

During the past two years, the Pacific Open Learning Health Network has delivered 25 online courses to over 900 health professionals in the Pacific region. Most of these participants had no previous access to continuing education and for some of them, it was the first opportunity for formal training in their field.
