Health Education & Training - Open University

Over 1 billion people worldwide never see a health care worker during the course of their lifetime, costing millions of lives. HEAT will change this. Transforming frontline health care HEAT is a radical Health Education and Training Programme created by The Open University to transform the education, training and retention of -- and access to -- frontline healthcare workers across the world. A bold ambitionBeginning with sub-Saharan Africa, and working in close collaboration with Governments, NGOs, academia and funding institutions from around the world, HEAT's ambition is to reach 250,000 frontline healthcare workers by 2016. Helping HEAT reach its potentialThis DVD, introduced by Joan Armatrading (three times Grammy nominated singer songwriter), outlines how HEAT works, why we've launched the programme and what help we need to reach HEAT's full potential. HEAT makes health possible.
