Health Technology Management at the Ministry of Health Assessment Report  

The World Health Organization (WHO), defines HTM as “an area of biomedical engineering, which comprises the domains of planning, needs assessment, selection, procurement, donations, inventory, installation and maintenance of medical equipment, training for safe use and finally decommissioning. Each of these domains encompasses a wide range of activities, including providing technical advice, planning and costing work, monitoring contracts, supply chain, decommissioning and disposal, managing workshop facilities, managing staff, record-keeping, managing the inventory, stock control of parts, consumables, managing waste, and implementing safety protocols”.
The objective of this study was to assess HTM implementation and practices within the MOH in Jordan. The study will serve as a baseline assessment which will illustrate a general overview of HTM in the public health sector. Initial recommendations and policy developments will be suggested based on interviews and data collection.
