Implemented and managed by the Learning Innovations Centre, Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) aims at building the technical capacity of healthcare workers in Uganda and throughout sub-Saharan Africa. The Virtual Learning Environment targets healthcare workers and other stakeholders whose work focuses on treatment, management and prevention of HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases. The priority areas of the Virtual Learning Environment are three-fold:
Through these priority areas, the VLE hopes to bridge the gap of limited healthcare workforce throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, as well as reduce the high attrition rates of healthcare workers by enhancing current face-to-face training programs and providing technical training at the workplace.
