Digital Health Portfolio

We combine our long-standing project experience and expertise with well-established health project models and innovative digital technologies to support a greater mission: Improving health for children and their communities, especially in countries where access to healthcare is severely limited.

2020 Global Digital Health SummaryResponding to health, nutrition, and COVID-19 needs globally

Many of our digital health projects provide much-needed support not only for the current COVID-19 global pandemic but also for health issues and health-system challenges that commonly affect children and communities in low-income countries. From October 2019 through September 2020, more than 3,100 community health workers used our digital health tools to reach more than 850,000 beneficiaries. Learn more about our Digital Health portfolio’s achievements in our latest Global Digital Health Summary.

We utilise low-cost, accessible digital tools, applications, and platforms such as CommCare, eClinic, KoBoToolbox, Last Mile Mobile Solutions (LMMS), mSupply, MOTECH, Viamo, and more in our digital health projects to collect and to analyse information that helps community health workers, clinics, and hospitals make the best health decisions for beneficiaries.
