Marketing And Outreach Programmes
The Information Training and Outreach Centre, ITOCA, spearheads outreach and marketing activities for the TEEAL, Research4Life and PROTA programmes across Africa. It is engaged by Cornell University-Mann Library and the UN agencies (FAO, WHO and UNEP) to promote, train and provide technical support for the information access programmes TEEAL, AGORA, HINARI and OARE, respectively.
ITOCA officers, supported through project activities by funders such as the Rockefeller Foundation, The Bill And Melinda Gates Foundation, CTA, FAO, WHO and PROTA Foundation, have carried out over 200 outreach and training missions in the last eleven years. This has been done across Sub-Saharan Africa reaching over 5,000 research and educational institutions. Through this ITOCA has been providing vital ICT consultancy to agricultural, environment and medical institutions.
