Global coronavirus infections now exceed 200,000 confirmed cases in 144 countries, with over 8,205 deaths from COVID-19, leading to international travel bans and almost 40 conference cancellations across the international development industry. Donors like USAID, DFID, World Bank, and Gates Foundation are asking, “What global digital health solutions are available for international COVID response that can be implemented by government health systems in low- and middle-income countries?”
We asked the Global Digital Health Network—over 4,000 digital health practitioners—for their thoughts on which digital health solutions would be applicable for COVID response in low- and middle-income countries, and received multiple ideas that public health managers can use to mitigate this international communicable disease outbreak.
