HEAL seeks to apply the principles of architectural design to the development of better health information systems especially within low resource settings. A key focus of HEAL is to provide the academic infrastructure that will enable it to partner with organizations able to provide co-funding and innovative projects for students.

Jembi is calling for applications for the HEAL Computer Science Scholarship.

This is an opportunity for postgraduate studies and scholarships in computer science provided by the mathematics, statistics and computer science school at the University of KwaZulu-Natal - a strategic partner to Jembi.

  • Tuition fees at the University of KwaZulu-Natal will also be covered.

Successful applicants will undertake their research projects within the HEAL, which provides a research and development space to apply and advance the state of the art in computer science. HEAL is currently implementing several collaborative projects to develop innovative architectures and technologies to improve health care delivery within low resource settings in developing African countries.
