Abstract: Experience learns that a participatory design approach is required when using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) when designing health solutions This creates a momentum of change. However, health facilities are often complex organisations and we learned that to create continuous and lasting change, explicit attention is required to the ongoing process of organisational change. The momentum of change should be transformed in a pathway. IICD and its partners in Tanzania developed a practical and integrated approach that scaffolds health management information systems, telemedicine and e-learning in one integrated approach called the eHealth package, which has relevance world wide. This document describes how to successfully use eHealth in Africa with the use of an eHealth package.
