Dissemination workshop for the Family Planning (FP) and Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) digital health compendium.
The Medical Concierge Group (TMCG) in conjunction with The Population Reference Bureau (PRB), under the Policy, Advocacy, and Communication Enhanced for Population and Reproductive Health (PACE) project supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has set up and updated Africa’s first Digital Health Compendium.
The Digital Health Compendium is a collection of case studies about different health technologies used to enhance family planning programs in Africa and globally. It works as a reference point for evidence-based learning, enabling users to do a quick search and get critical information that facilitates the adoption and scale-up of digital tools.
The project successfully sourced and updated 16 new case submissions over a 1-year period and these cases came from nine countries including Rwanda (1 case study), Tanzania (1), Kenya (1), Uganda (6), Turkey (3), India (3), Pakistan (3), Cameroon (1) and Burkina Faso (2).
In this compendium, various implementing organizations share their findings on how digital innovations and technology interventions have enhanced family planning programs and Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, and Adolescent Health, particularly in Sub Saharan Africa.
The target users of the compendium cut across different stakeholders including; implementing partners that can learn from what has been done, governments to leverage existing resources to improve performance, software developers among others.
