Managing the Medical Equipment Lifecycle

A detailed overview of the medical equipment lifecycle.  This resource identifies assumptions (expectations) about the medical equipment lifecycle that might be valid in a high-resource setting but which may not be valid in a low-resource setting.  The assumptions are linked to mitigations: ways to prevent setbacks, and improve progress and quality in your medical equipment project.

Every partnership involved in health system strengthening will encounter barriers and challenges. The approach taken by the Global Links Volunteer Programme is to develop a culture in which it is acceptable to talk frankly about those barriers so that they can be addressed or accepted.
