SUMMARY

A cornerstone of Ethiopia's Health System Transformation Plan is using innovative digital health interventions and informed policy decisions based on quality data to improve the health and well being of Ethiopians. The USAID-funded Digital Health Activity (DHA) is a five-year project that supports Ethiopia in improving the quality and availability of healthcare services through the deployment of data-driven and patient-centered digital tools. 

Together with the Federal Ministry of Health and partners, including the Bill & Melinda Gates-funded Data Use Partnership, DHA is helping build sustainable, resilient, and interoperable health information systems (HIS) that ensure the entire health sector has the data, analytics, and skills necessary to improve the health and well-being of all Ethiopians. DHA is doing this through three objectives:

Digitization

Deployment of various digital tools that:

  • Enable healthcare providers to deliver standardized services  
  • Capture health data to provide data-driven services 

Data Use 

  • Make informed decisions through data-driven analysis
  • Improve access to health services through remote care and consultations
  • Empower patients to control their care with digital health solutions 

Governance and Capacity Building

  • Improve service delivery by empowering competent and caring health care providers 
  • Nurture private sector, academia and tech start-ups to bolster digital health ecosystem for sustainability 

JSI leads the Digital Health Activity with a consortium of partners including Dimagi Inc., IntraHealth, Orbit Health, and WebSprix.
