DIGITAL SQUARE IS A DIGITAL HEALTH MARKETPLACE—OR ‘SQUARE’—WHERE SUPPLY AND DEMAND COME TOGETHER TO ACCELERATE HEALTH EQUITY.
A historic lack of coordination in digital health has resulted in an imbalanced, disorganized marketplace where available tools and investment mechanisms do not match the long-term needs of countries or communities. To accelerate health equity through the development, adoption, scale, and delivery of digital health innovations, Digital Square focuses on creating better alignment and coordination.
Digital Square brings partners together to improve how the global community designs, uses, and pays for digital health tools and approaches. We work with innovators to advance adaptable, replicable tools that are designed to work together seamlessly. We work with governments and country-based technology experts to strengthen local capacity to implement and manage digital health programs. We work with donors to identify new ways to invest that ensure long-term success and align with country priorities. By strengthening the coordination among these partners, Digital Square reorients the market to better match tools and approaches to the needs of countries and communities.
Digital Square brings technical, operational, and advocacy expertise to address well-recognized barriers to scaling digital health. Our strong partnerships across the sector allow us to identify barriers faced in different areas of the marketplace and collectively design new approaches to overcome them. Our work focuses on three key areas: alignment & coordination, global goods, and regional & country support.
