LIN strives to build sustainability and long-term development through capacity building and education programs. We believe in nurturing and cultivating local capacity in computer sciences and health sciences, and at the same time building better international partnerships through global health talent development.
LIN serves as a bridge and linkage to different organizations and institutions, and facilitates inter-organization learning. For example, exchange training programs for software developers and hardware management staff between Taiwan and Malawi have resulted in a growing body of competent technical personnel for health information system development and support within Malawi. Furthermore, LIN is working to build a series of eHealth courses that can be tailored and targeted at continuous education for health workers at all levels. We are also promoting research and global health training programs through maintaining a network of academic partners between universities in Taiwan, Europe, South Africa and Malawi.
