Abstract

Educational Development Centers (EDCs) in the health sector act as a resource and a catalyst for educational change and therefore have a significant role to play in the professional development of health personnel. The World Health Organisation has actively supported the establishments of EDCs by its member states because of the valuable contribution they can make to improving medical education. This improvement is usually realised through developing more appropriate curricula that reflect the needs of the community, upgrading the quality of education of health personnel and providing support for those involved in these changes.
