The Norwegian Centre for E-health Research is a partner of the EU-funded project BETTEReHEALTH, which is coordinated by SINTEF. This 2-year project involves 11 partners from 7 countries in Europe and Africa.

Four regional hubs will be established in Tunisia, Ghana, Ethiopia, and Malawi. The other partners are from the Netherlands, Belgium, and Norway.E-health Research’s role includes coordinating work package 3, which addresses human factors related to successful e-health. We will perform a stakeholder analysis to identify all the stakeholders of e-health, and explore user-centredness and sustainability of e-health.

In addition, we will perform a systematic review on e-health policies and legislation in the African countries.

The E-health Research employees involved with BETTEReHEALTH are Siri Bjørvig, Merethe Drivdal, Dillys Larbi, and Monika K. Gullslett, who is the project leader.
