SESRIC, the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Turkey, the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) and the Federal Ministry of Health of Sudan, jointly organised a training course on “Disaster and Prehospital Medicine” on 18-29 November 2018 in Khartoum, Sudan.
45 health workers from the Ministry of Health of Sudan, divided in two groups, benefited from this training.
The course was organised within the framework of the project on “Strengthening Coordination and Capacity Building on Preparedness and Response for Health Emergencies in the OIC Member States”. It was designed as the third pilot training course carried out by the trained Sudanese trainers and supervised by the Turkish specialists.
The training was part of a project between SESRIC, the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Turkey, TİKA and the Federal Ministry of Health of the Republic of Sudan, carried out within the framework of the Strategic Health Programme of Action (SHPA) 2014-2023, under “Thematic Area 5 on Emergency Health Response and Interventions”. The aim of the project is to strengthen coordination and capacity building of the OIC countries in preparedness and response to health emergencies.
Within this framework, the first phase of the project that includes training of trainers in both Sudan and Turkey as well as two pilot training courses on July and August carried out by Sudanese trainers under the supervision of Turkish specialists has been successfully implemented.
