How to take minutes

The case study above, 'Governance structures in Dodoma and London', describes the partnership's good practice in governance, which includes having various project committees. The committees ensure their discussions and decisions are recorded accurately and transparently through good minuting of their meetings and sharing minutes.  This Wiki on how to take meeting minutes offers generic good practice advice which you can apply to your own health partnership.  We are always looking for ways to improve the resources we provide to health partnerships so if you would like to offer an alternative source of guidance on this topic, please contact a member of the THET team.
