Who we are
eTURO is a PCHRD funded project that supports the capacity building activities of the National eHealth program of the Department of Health. We do this by providing, cataloging, and advertising short courses and programs on health and related fields. These courses are delivered through online channels, such as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), and face-to-face instruction. The project also provides a centralized platform that consolidates eHealth and other health-related training programs and materials for ease of access of health professionals and community health workers seeking additional training and certification.
