Something New for Health Education Officers
In July of 2007, these Jamaican Ministry of Health Officers were using overhead projectors with transparencies so low in contrast that they were barely legible. New to multi-media projectors and power points, they quickly learned the skills necessary to use this equipment for training. Highly motivated, they formed a Community Based Organization of Ministry of Education Basic School Educators, created Step Up Now and began fund raising to acquire equipment. When I left the area in 2009, SUN had placed 80 computers in St. Catherine and was using a room in the Ewarton Health Centre for meetings and training.
