the Digital Health Collaborative

About the


Integration of digital interventions into health systems has become increasingly important as health systems face rising demands to deliver new, more, better, and more seamless services affordable to all people. The Digital Health Collaborative, launched in November 2023, aims to enable practitioners to learn from each other about what worked to integrate digital technology and data into healthcare systems. 

The Collaborative will serve as a hub of experience-based knowledge sharing across member countries. The learning activities of the Collaborative will center on interoperability, private sector solutions, making the case for digital health, and digital health governance
