S & F Teleconsultations
During Q2 2018, 1172 teleconsultations were conducted across all sites in South-Central Asia, as compared to 1835 teleconsultations in Q2 2017, depicting a 28% decrease in activities. The decrease in the number of teleconsultations was due to planned budgetary limitations.
Even though eLearning activities were not supported as a result of budgetary restrictions of the no-cost extension under the Central Asia Health Systems Strengthening Project, AKDN health agencies were able to absorb operational costs of eLearning services and a 16% of increase in activities at no-cost to the donor was observed. In Q2 2018, 790 health care professionals were trained as opposed to 680 in Q2 2017.
The number of participants attending eLearning sessions increased notably in Pakistan as a result of awareness raising activities conducted to motivate staff to avail eLearning opportunities in mid-2017.
