CHIRAD is involved in teaching and administration of an MSc in Health Informatics course in Eastern Cape province, South Africa.

A new partnership between Walter Sisulsu University, Umtata (Mthatha), South Africa (WSU) and United Kingdom’s University of Winchester is set to take the standard of the Eastern Cape Health Department to even greater heights.

The initiative – launched in June at the Mthatha Campus - is to make WSU the center of excellence in developing, training and application of Health Informatics in clinical practice for the province and South Africa.

This will solve the challenge of the Eastern Cape Department of Health in finding health information.

Present at the launch were Professor Graham Wright and Doctor Peter Murray from the University of Winchester and Doctor Nolwazi Mbananga from Medical Research Council.

A delighted Professor Khaya Mfenyana, WSU’s Interim Vice-Principal: Academic Support, defined the launching of the Health Informatics program as a dream come true
