As part of its efforts to build the capacity of health personnel in the application of digital tools, HPSS Project has supported the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, the Elderly and Children (MoHCDGEC) to conduct Training of Trainers (ToT) on Medical Equipment and Infrastructure Management Information System (MEIMIS) for senior Government health workers.
The training took place in Dodoma and drew participants from different government ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) such as MoHCDGEC, President’s Office – Regional Administration and Local Government (PORALG), zonal and specialized hospitals, national, regional and district hospitals.
The training was officiated by Simon Ernest, the Acting Director of Curative Services at MoHCDGEC and was facilitated by Biomedical Engineers/Technicians (BMETs) and ICT officers from health facility “Master trainers”, with backstopping from MoHCDGEC and HPSS teams.
“This digital health system is so crucial to ensure effective accountability, monitoring and decision making especially on resource allocation”, said Ernest in his opening remarks for the training.
