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.

Enhancement of the Medicines Registration Application Pharmadex

Notice C Opportunity: 
Announcement C0: Global Good Software Development and Support
Application Status: 
Approved – Contingent on Funding

1.   Executive Summary

High-quality and affordable medicines are the foundation for a country’s ability to provide effective health care. National medicines regulatory authorities (NMRAs) use product registration as a mechanism for assuring the quality of pharmaceuticals and health commodities; however, the registration process is complicated and time consuming.

Enhancing the Interoperability of SENAITE Health Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS)

Notice C Opportunity: 
Announcement C0: Global Good Software Development and Support
Application Status: 
Out of Scope

Executive Summary

 

Laboratories are a pillar of any care, treatment, and prevention program and the data they generate are critical for clinical decision-making, disease screening, monitoring, blood safety and surveillance.

Escrowed data retention and retrieval solution for digital health application platforms based on distributed blockchain technology starting with DHIS2

Notice C Opportunity: 
Announcement C0: Global Good Software Development and Support
Application Status: 
In Scope

We propose leading a software R&D effort to build a 3rd party escrowed data retention and retrieval solution for digital health application platforms based on distributed blockchain technology starting with DHIS2 as the first target platform.

Expert Community Engagement to Address Privacy and Security in DHIS2 Centric Solutions

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

We propose to engage an expert community, via a rapid Target Product Profile (TPP) process, to determine the security and privacy assets that need to be adapted and/or developed, which, if adopted by implementers, would help reduce the security and privacy risks for patient-centric solutions developed in LMIC contexts using DHIS2.

Fighting Absenteeism with Biometrics

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

I. Executive Summary

Absenteeism, or unscheduled absence from work, is a persistent problem in health facilities worldwide. The cause of absenteeism among health workers is multifaceted but the net effects are clear and highly disruptive to already-struggling health services. Most importantly, reduced numbers of staff result in diminished service provision and compromised service quality, as those health workers that do report to work are often overburdened with the tasks of their absent colleagues.
