E-Heza Data Solution is a Digital Public Good

By: TIP Global Health | December 12, 2022

On December 4, 2022 E-Heza Data Solution was added to the Digital Public Goods Alliance DPG Registry. The goal of the DPGA and its registry is to promote digital public goods in order to create a more equitable world. Being recognised as a DPG increases the visibility, support for, and prominence of open projects that have the potential to tackle global challenges. To become a digital public good, all projects are required to meet the DPG Standard to ensure that projects truly encapsulate open source principles. 

E-Heza Data Solution is a point of care digital health platform designed alongside frontline health workers and the Rwanda Ministry of Health to improve the quality of primary healthcare across the entire ecosystem of care from villages to health facilities. E-Heza captures essential data at the point of care to improve primary health care delivery by providing frontline health workers with immediate insights to help personalize information and care for families. 

E-Heza being recognised as a digital public good – defined as open source software, open data, open AI models, open standards, and open content that adhere to privacy and other applicable laws and best practices, do no harm, and help attain the SDGs – means that TIP Global Health will be officially recognized for our commitment to the Principles of Digital Development that serve as a foundation of our work. The DPG designation serves as an external validation of the maturity of our software that provides reassurance to governments in our readiness for scale.

The Digital Public Goods Alliance is a multi-stakeholder initiative endorsed by the United Nations Secretary-General, working to accelerate the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals in low- and middle-income countries by facilitating the discovery, development, use of, and investment in digital public goods.
