Overcoming Challenges Through Digital Solutions: Insights and Innovations for Improved Healthcare Delivery

November 9th, 2023 | Story


In a rapidly changing world, data and technology are fundamental for overcoming global health challenges. With digital solutions and improved access to and use of high-quality data, decision-makers have the means to strengthen health systems to provide person-centered care.

At JSI, we collaborate with partners to foster equitable, evidence-based health systems that improve client experiences. Our approach is always locally led and globally informed, working closely with not only government and global actors, but also with communities, individuals, and health workers to place information in the hands of those who can deliver an optimal health experience.

In celebration of Digital Health Week, we’ve gathered perspectives and stories that highlight how digital health investments can strengthen the availability and use of high-quality data for better programming, leading to better health outcomes for all.
