Technology-enabled solutions have a major impact on the international humanitarian and development sector, with new and emerging technologies continuing to pave a new way forward. Digital ID allows organizations to collect accurate beneficiary data and track progress towards the SDGs. The integration of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or drones into supply chain systems leads to an increase in the availability and access to lifesaving health commodities and fills significant service gaps in public health supply chains. With Electronic Health Records, health providers can understand the requirements of communities, and artificial intelligence and predictive analytics can improve health outcomes. The emergence of digital tools bundled with predictive and descriptive analytics helps community health workers to identify high-risk patients for timely and quality service. 

Digital technologies are mitigating barriers associated with distance, time, infrastructure and analog data processes and can improve how health services are accessed and delivered. Community Health Workers and Frontline Health Workers can now register patients and track health services across a continuum of care and increase facility transparency, autonomy, and accountability. A digital health service can provide a complete End to End service that delivers actionable data, with the implementation of Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance systems, and end-to-end logistics information management systems, which can collect historical consumption data and utilize predictive analytics to accurately support demand planning and optimize in-country public health supply chains.

Join sessions with CDC China, Technical University of Catalonia, BarcelonaTech, Jhpiegpo, Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics, Living Goods, VecanCares and learn how organizations are using new and emerging technologies. Chemonics International, Cooper Smith, Abt Associates Inc, will present the innovative tools and platforms they are developing.

Frontline AIDS [clear filter]

Rights! Evidence! Action! How Frontline AIDS is using DHIS2 to track its contribution to SDG3 to ensure no one gets left behind.
Every day, millions are denied access to HIV prevention, testing, treatment, and care they need to live healthy, fulfilling lives. Frontline AIDS aims to end AIDS for everyone everywhere. Our data needs are diverse; both the types of data we collect and the range of partners collecting the data. Since 2017 we have been developing DHIS2 and we’ll present the diverse ways we are using it; from adolescents tracking services they provide to their peers, to advocacy logs completed by activists, to documenting and responding to human rights violations. We’ll share our challenges and lessons learned.
