Digital Health in South Africa: Experiences Establishing, Implementing, and Evaluating MomConnect and Other Digital Health Initiatives in South Africa
South Africa is at the forefront of innovation in the health sector globally. We start with an overview of the digital health landscape in South Africa. This will be followed by a deep dive into the department’s flagship program: MomConnect. This session will detail the groundwork, financing, partnerships, and stewardship undertaken to establish and support it. We then discuss its digital health architecture; emphasizing interoperability, linkages between health information systems, privacy and data security.
