Promoting the collaborative development of proposals for investments in digital health global goods

Digital Square supports investments in digital health global goods, which are tools that are adaptable to different countries and contexts. Mature digital health global good software is software that is (usually) Free and Open Source (FOSS), is supported by a strong community, has a clear governance structure, is funded by multiple sources, has been deployed at significant scale, is used across multiple countries, has demonstrated effectiveness, is designed to be interoperable, and is an emergent standard application.

We are using an open proposal process. Your concept notes and proposals will be publicly posted, giving you and other submitters the opportunity to find collaborators and provide and receive feedback from your peers.

A DHIS2 App to enhance DHIS2 computational capabilities

Primary Author: Antoine Legrand
Notice C Opportunity: 
Announcement C0: Global Good Software Development and Support
Application Status: 
Approved - partially funded

Executive Summary

DHIS2 is increasingly used by Ministries of Health and their stakeholders to collect, manage, and analyze data for global health programs. While DHIS2 has powerful and flexible analytical capabilities, the system has limitations when it comes to doing complex calculations needed to implement, measure, and support decision-making for health programs. Governments and their partners currently use external tools to implement their performance monitoring and M&E frameworks that cannot be included in DHIS2.
