Last month, Prof. Luc de Witte and Prof Mark Hawley joined project partners in Bangalore, India for a 2nd workshop as part of our international project “a mobile diagnostic and screening toolkit for urban slums settings”.
18 participants from our local partners attended the workshop, held in Bangalore Baptist Hospital, Bangalore. This included technology experts, health professionals and community health workers with experience working in urban slums.
The workshop aimed at reaching a consensus between the team and project partners on the design of the mobile toolkit. Many exciting discussions were undertaken covering a range of topics from key consideration in the design of the toolkit, the toolkit content, to the tests and technology that will be included.At the end of the workshop, the team agreed on the next phase of the project which will include designing and evaluating a basic prototype of the toolkit.
