Over a period of three years, INASP worked with partners in Vietnam and Sweden to develop a pool of 22 skilled and confident master trainers at 10 Vietnamese universities that run medical education programmes. The aim was to ingrain online information usage and access across the sector. The trainers have gone on to train more than 1800 doctors, researchers and staff in Vietnam in how to access up-to-date online health information.
