Health learning materials support in South Africa compared with other developing countries
Actions to promote media use for education at all levels in developing countries have to cope with a number of deterrents like the lack of appropriate audiovisual materials and a media support infrastructure. In the early eighties the World Health Organization and United Nations Development Programme initiated a capacity building project to enable developing countries to generate sufficient instructional and learning materials for medical and health education. Since South Africa is still a non-participator in the programme, this article presents the findings of a recent survey to get a global picture of health learning materials support in developing countries as a possible model for South Africa. © 1996 Informa UK Ltd All rights reserved.
