Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the preconditions for an implemented

and 100% financed aid project within the healthcare in Uganda. The project is a

digital medical record system developed with ICT to facilitate and improve the

different tasks performed in the healthcare.

Focus has been on future development and how to properly adapt the system to fit

the preconditions in order to achieve self-sufficiency and less reliability on

support from abroad.

Research has been made on how the preconditions found in Uganda can be

utilized for a sustainable project.

The main source of information for this thesis comes from conducted field studies

in Uganda consisting of observations at a health clinic, general observations of

the country, its inhabitants and interviews with experts within the field of ICT4D

in Uganda.

Conclusions from the results points out modern technology as a less important

key-factor in the achievement of a sustainable ICT-project within the healthcare

in Uganda.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna undersökning är att utreda förutsättningarna för ett

implementerat och 100% finansierat biståndsprojekt inom sjukvården i Uganda.

Projektet är ett digitalt journalsystem utvecklat med ICT för att underlätta och

förbättra de olika uppgifter som utförs inom vården.

Fokus har legat på framtida utveckling och hur man korrekt kan anpassa systemet

efter förutsättningarna i syfte att uppnå självförsörjning och självständighet.

Undersökning har gjorts för att förstå hur förutsättningarna som finns i Uganda

bäst kan utnyttjas för ett hållbart projekt.

Den främsta informationskällan för denna avhandling kommer från genomförda

fältstudier i Uganda bestående av observationer vid en vårdcentral, allmänna

iakttagelser av landet, dess invånare och intervjuer med experter inom området

ICT4D i Uganda.

Slutsatser av resultaten pekar ut modern teknik som en mindre viktig nyckelfaktor

för att uppnå ett hållbart ICT-projekt inom sjukvården i Uganda.
