The discussion that was unfold by this presentation then focussed on asset management of DHD, in particular for tablets that have been provided to the districts by various development partners for different programmes and their efficient use, the handling of e-waste and the involvement of CMED into this topic. The meeting also tackled overlapping pertinent issues around connectivity options for Digital Health systems.

The meeting concluded with the chairperson encouraging members to continue with collaborative efforts with the DHD and among the partners, and continuously updating progress in the Digital Health Consolidated workplan.
