Classification of digital health interventions

The classification of digital health interventions (DHIs) categorizes the different ways in which digital and mobile technologies are being used to support health system needs. Targeted primarily at public health audiences, this Classification framework aims to promote an accessible and bridging language for health program planners to articulate functionalities of digital health implementations. Also referred to as a taxonomy, this Classification scheme is anchored on the unit of a “digital health intervention,” which represents a discrete functionality of the digital technology to achieve health sector objectives.

She knows best: Engaging girls in adolescent programming

With the support of the David & Lucile Packard Foundation, the International Rescue Committee piloted a new approach to increase access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care for adolescents in Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo. The report “She knows best: Engaging girls in adolescent programming” highlights the strategy developed to address foundational facility and community-level barriers that prevent adolescents from accessing and receiving quality SRH services.

The 90-90-90 compendium Volume 4

The 90-90-90 Compendium is Health Systems Trust’s contribution to South Africa’s strategy for meeting the UNAIDS ‘Fast-track’ targets by the year 2020. We partner with a number of health districts in implementing the 90-90-90 Strategy, and during the course of our fieldwork, the need for a practical guide to assist health workers and other stakeholders in understanding and implementing the strategy was identified.

Two booklets make up Volume 4 of the Compendium, which was released in February 2018: The role of communities and individuals in combatting the epidemic and Healthy me, healthy us: A guide for community members about good health and staying healthy with chronic illness. These are designed around an illustrated dialogue that explains the need for regular screening for diseases and chronic illness, as well as the steps to be followed for treatment and care. Community health workers and caregivers, community-based and faith-based organisations, and other networked associations, can share this handy resource with their clients and constituencies, and we hope that its usage will empower community agents and members with valuable guidance while generating increased uptake of primary health care services.
