The aim with this master’s thesis was to investigate the possibilities for an e-learning function to sustain in the future in a national health portal in Tanzania. The project and the master’s thesis was done through a field study in two districts in northernTanzania and the field study was a collaboration between the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Karolinska Institutet (KI), Dar Es Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT) and Muhimbili University of health and Allied Sciences(MUHAS). The thesis gives an introduction to e-learning and how it can be used to further educate health care staff in Tanzania. The master’s thesis includes a possible business plan for the sustainability of the e-learning function and recommendations that should be considered when designing the business plan for the health portal. The most important results from the field study was that the technology is not ready for an e-learning function today in Tanzania.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta examensarbete har varit att ta fram en affärsplan för ett e-utbildningssystem som ska ingå i en nationell hälsoportal i Tanzania. Möjligheterna för hälsoportalens fortsatta existens kommer att vara i fokus. Detta realiserades genom en fältstudie i två distrikt i norra Tanzania och projekt var ett samarbete mellan KTH, KI, DIT samt MUHAS. Examensarbetet ger en introduktion till webbaserat lärande samt hur det kan användas för att vidareutbilda hälsovårdspersonal i Tanzania. Uppsatsen presenterar en möjlig affärsplan för en fortsatt levnad för hälsoportalen när projektet är avslutat samt rekommendationer som bör beaktas när affärsplanen för hälsoportalen designas. Det viktigaste resultatet som framkom under studien är att det idag inte finns teknik som stödjer e-lärande i Tanzania idag.
