Digital Health: Planning National Systems
Over the past 15 years, counties have implemented a wide range of promising digital health interventions. Country governments have increasingly realized that in order to have scalable, sustainable, and interoperable digital health systems, a government-led, coordinated approach is required.
The course, Digital Health: Planning National Systems, is designed to empower ministry leadership with the technical concepts and planning tools necessary to steer and orient national digital health stakeholders.
The curriculum has been developed by USAID, Digital Square, TechChange, and Last Mile Health and is based on content compiled by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). It features critical technical concepts, existing best practices, and pragmatic methods, all framed according to the national planning cycle that Ministry of Health officials manage.
