The Sudan Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH) is enhancing the capacity of its rapid response teams (RRTs) through ToT training workshops adapted to Sudan’s current emergency profile. Within this effort, the FMoH, supported by GHD/EMPHNET, conducted a training of trainers (ToT) in Khartoum, between June 24 and 28, 2018, for 40 RRT federal and state team members from the Ministry of Health.
Experts from the FMoH and GHD/EMPHNET facilitated the training’s sessions on adult learning, facilitating classroom, communication skills and training evaluations. In addition, facilitators delivered sessions on RRT teams’ composition, intersectoral coordination, International Health Regulations (IHR), surveillance systems, outbreak investigation and control measures, risk assessment and communication, infection control and prevention, as well as biosafety and biosecurity.
Adopting an adult interactive learning approach, the facilitators also guided participants through an example of an outbreak investigation and the ideal response for an outbreak. Furthermore, participants presented examples on an outbreak diseases from their recent country experiences.
Furthermore, the ToT’s sessions were dedicated to topics on adult learning including how to facilitate classroom learning, evaluate training, and communicate with trainees.
