Mr. Maximilian Christian Glaetzner, a representative of a non-governmental organization (NGO) in Germany, Health Information Technology for Africa (HITA), paid a curtesy call on the Vice Chancellor of UHAS, Professor John Owusu Gyapong as part of his working visit to the University.
The HITA organization jointly submitted two proposals to the European Commission (EC) for funding with the UHAS School of Nursing and Midwifery (SONAM) early this year.
While in Ho, the HITA representative will be visiting three health facilities in the Volta Region. Through the initiative of the university, these health facilities will benefit from medical supplies and equipment donation by the HITA organization, as part of the community service mandate of the university.
Mr. Maximilian Christian Glaetzner, the HITA representative, will also conduct feasibility studies on a campus intranet project that will be piloted at SONAM early next year to facilitate effective teaching and learning through innovative mLearning and eLearning solutions.
Interacting with the guest, the Vice Chancellor expressed his commitment and support for the HITA initiative in SONAM and requested that the innovation be scaled up to other schools in the university as early as practicable to benefit all students in UHAS.
Also present were the Dean of SONAM, Professor Prudence Portia Mwini-Nyaledzigbor and the Heads of Departments for General Nursing and Public Health Nursing.
