Short description: Training, experience exchange and education of physiotherapists
Description: The project is to build the intellectual and practical capacity of physiotherapists through a peer learning approach and an interactive electronic network. The approach is a merge of training, experience exchange and education. The project will retain the competencies required to fulfill the needs of the African communities whilst maintaining the international standards of physiotherapy services as its main goal. This project is a continuation of NIBRASS project whose overall aim was to secure a sustainable B.Sc. Programme in Physiotherapy at Ahfad University for Women and to develop a regional cooperation in rehabilitation and physiotherapy education to provide the region with health care services of high quality. Capacity of physiotherapists as clinicians and educators in South Africa, Sudan and Tanzania will thus be enhanced through a regional cooperation focussing on physiotherapy education and rehabilitation. Patients in the relevant region will thus be provided with physiotherapy services of a high quality.
