Status of the project

  • we are missing clearly defined roles and responsibilities
  • action items are not followed up

  • Village platform – creation process. Where do we get information from the villages? What type of information do the villages need? Bernard and Felix will do the need assessment locally.
  • Field visits: use a document as a check list for assessing the appropriateness of the content. Twitter feed and possibly FB feed.
  • A discussion on use of server. Should the digital health information be placed on the Cystinet server at NIMR? Bernard recommends. Josef to contact Jan, to check on logistic, space, bandwith speed.
