Contributing to the Community Health Toolkit

How to contribute to the CHT tools and documentation

There are many ways to contribute to the Community Health Toolkit.

Are you a developer?

The Development section of the forum is a great place to introduce yourself and ask questions. Or you can also jump right in:

Are you a researcher, designer, or health practitioner?

Are you a partner wondering how issues are prioritized?

There are a number of factors that contribute to prioritization of work. The following represents important factors that are often evaluated together to have the best chance for the largest impact if a partner will:

  • Upgrade to get the feature/bugfix
  • Help validate, design and prototype the feature
  • Offer a time-bound funding opportunity which may influence when something gets done, provided that it aligns with the CHT product vision.
  • Be blocked by it for a major release or expansion
  • Has users that are unable to use the CHT or experience it in a way that results in providing degraded care

Will get prioritized. Further, internally, a ticket may be needed to facilitate a release or perform important upgrades as is critical to do in the maintenance of software.

Also, improvements and ideas for this doc site are always welcome!
