Abstract: Sudanese professionals working abroad responded to calls of duty to help in development efforts in Sudan. Many of them formed groups that coordinated & organized these efforts. One of these groups was the Forum of Sudanese Professionals Working in Oman (FSPWO). It was formed in 2003 with the aim of coordinating the willingness & readiness of the professionals to contribute to development efforts in Sudan. This paper discusses the role of the FSPWO in transferring the knowledge & skills in the fields of medical informatics & educational technology to practitioners & educators working in the health field. The main technologies addressed were related to clinical decision support, particularly evidence-based medicine & the use of technology in learning & continuing medical education particularly e-learning & digital libraries. Several workshops were conducted in collaboration with SPAKTEN & an e-learning strategy was developed together with the development with digital health libraries.
