Mobile training and support (MOTS) service, using technology to increase Ebola preparedness of remotely-located community health workers (CHWs) in Sierra Leone

Technology should be considered when planning delivery of training to CHWs and can be positioned as a vehicle by which repetitive aspects of important training content can be reinforced without the need for additional classroom presence of the CHW community. Sustainability of such solutions requires cost containment and subsequent software accessibility for authorities in resource-limited settings. Transparent partnership and alignment with the Ministry of Health & Sanitation in Sierra Leone from the outset of this project are considered an important element to ensure successful implementation.
