Résumé Health Partnerships working in low-resource settings frequently encounter challenges relating to medical equipment that can influence the success of their projects. These challenges include a lack of functioning equipment, and other aspects of what is called ‘Healthcare Technology Management (HTM)’. HTM concerns the management of the medical equipment life cycle; from planning to purchase, installation, operation all the way through decommissioning and disposal. This resource serves as a companion to the Making it Work toolkit, published by THET in 2013 and offers an overview of the steps of the equipment life cycle and ways for partnerships to integrate these considerations into their projects. This resource identifies ‘Assumptions’; expectations which might be valid for high-resource settings but which are not necessarily valid for low – and middle-income countries (LMICs). These are linked to ‘Mitigations’; potential ways to prevent setbacks and to improve the progress of the project and the quality of healthcare in the LMIC. Some of the mitigations need the support of a technical expert, but many can be done without additional resources
