“If you want to go far, go together!”— In the development of the health information systems for Malawi, this is also what we believe in.

During LIN’s Managing Director, Mr. Hans-Tore Leithe, International Director, Dr. Joseph Yu, and IT advisor, Mr. Johnson Huang’s visit to Malawi, we took the opportunity to visit one of our partners, Baobab Health Trust (BHT) on 15.April.2016. We were warmly welcomed by the BHT team, lead by the Executive Director, Mr. Oliver Gadabu. The twoteams shared experience and discussed the vision, roadmaps and future developments of the country’s National Electronic Medical Records System.

Baobab Health Trust and Luke International have been working together in building and supporting the electronic medical records system in Malawi since 2012. This year, we have taken a step forward to strengthen the partnership through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The MOU serves as the basis for continued collaboration and creating conducive environment for harmonization, coordination and collective innovation that will maximize the contributions to the health sector.

Keep tuned in for all the exciting programs we will be implementing this year! Malawi is moving forward, and we will move forward together!
