Date: 21-23 August 2011

The MIS-Health of DGHS with collaboration from iStrategy Ltd. and Bangladesh Enterprise Institute (BEI) organized a three-day workshop on ‘Future Scenario Planning of HIS and e-Health in Bangladesh‘ from 21 to 23 August 2011 at MIS Auditorium, MIS-Health, DGHS, Mohakhali, Dhaka.

The desired outcome is a scenario planning exercise for digital health in Bangladesh to result in a better understanding of the variety of possible futures for digital health over the next decade. This understanding will hopefully lead to better collaboration across sectors and wider engagement of stakeholders in driving towards the future they want to see, versus one which might be suboptimal.We also hope that a scenario approach will help the stakeholders in Bangladesh agree on a ‘North Star’ in terms of goals for digital health, which will help align their efforts towards this common goal even in the face of  competition and differing agendas.

The workshop was facilitated by a scenario planning expert from the University of the Sunshine Coast in Australia. This workshop is made possible by generous support from the Rockefeller Foundation.

The workshop had the following schedule:

August 21st: 10 AM – 5 PM

August 22nd: 10 AM – 4 PM

August 23rd: 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM
