Health workers to benefit

ALMOST half of the Ministry of Health establishment have benefited in terms of professional development from the Pacific Open Learning Health Network centre (POLHN).

The newly-opened POLHN centre at the Labasa Hospital is expected to benefit health workers in the North.

Officiating at the centre's opening yesterday, Minister for Health Doctor Neil Sharma said there were 25 internet connected centres around the country set up in sub-divisional and divisional hospitals.

Dr Sharma said many of the centres existed for some time, with POLHN first beginning as a pilot program in 2003.

"Between 2003 and 2012, 815 workers used POLHN to strengthen their skills and knowledge," he said.

Eleven computers are part of the new POLHN centre that opened at the Labasa Hospital yesterday.
