Developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Pacific Ministries of Health, Pacific Open Learning Health Net (POLHN) provides online learning opportunities for health workers in the Pacific. Our mission is to develop a knowledgeable, skilled and motivated health workforce using relevant, effective and quality e-learning.
We partner with academic institutions to provide online continuing professional development courses. We offer sponsorship for postgraduate programs, as well as access to recognized self-paced courses on health topics.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I find out what courses or programmes are offered by POLHN?
For self-paced online courses, visit the online self-paced course bank. This is updated regularly and new courses are being added all the time.
For sponsored courses through FNU, visit the information on POLHN-FNU sponsorship. These courses are only available on a semester to semester basis, meaning that applications are only open twice a year.
To keep up to date on new courses and when applications are open, visit the POLHN Facebook page, contact your local POLHN focal point, or email info@polhn.org
Where can I get the application form?
Application forms for sponsored courses are available online in PDF format. If you are unable to download due to slow internet, you can send an email info@polhn.org. You can also collect application forms from any POLHN centre. For information on how and where to submit applications, visit the page on applying for sponsorship.
No application form is required for self-paced courses. Click login to access courses.
When do I apply for sponsorship?
Apply for sponsorship as soon as you get a notification that applications are open for sponsorship through FNU, PPTC or Penn Foster. For FNU courses, candidates need to apply each semester to continue with sponsorship.
Application deadlines are updated on this website as well as on the POLHN Facebook page. You can also sign up for the POLHN newsletter, which advertises relevant dates.
How long does it take for POLHN to confirm sponsorship?
The process normally takes two months. The application goes through different vetting systems to ensure selection transparency before sponsorship is awarded. Interested candidates should follow-up with POLHN to confirm whether they are sponsored.
Do I have to pay to take the course or programme?
Applicants are not required to pay for any POLHN courses, however, they may be charged an FNU administration fee for an examination resit and other related costs. The cost of the programme is borne by POLHN.
How many courses can I take on POLHN?
Applicants can take one sponsored unit at a time from FNU, PPTC or Penn Foster. Any other unit cost will be borne by the student. Students can do multiple self-paced courses at once; POLHN does not have any restriction on the number of self-paced courses students can take.
Where can I access POLHN?
You can access POLHN from any POLHN center or from any internet-connected device, including mobile devices. Computers are also available at POLHN learning centers across the Pacific.
When can I use POLHN centers?
POLHN centers can be accessed during office hours. Special arrangements can sometimes be made through ministries of health outside office hours.
