USAID’s October 2018 Global Health Newsletter Focuses On Digital Health
USAID’s “Global Health News”: Digital Health
USAID’s October 2018 newsletter focuses on digital health. “…[W]ith just over 10 years remaining to attain the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, how do we harness data and technology to deliver on the promise of ‘Health for All?’ Digital health continues to be transformative in supporting the health system, allowing health care workers to share data instantaneously and dispense essential, life-saving medicines where they’re needed most. It also helps us understand which interventions work best, and ensures that children are vaccinated on time. USAID and the broader donor community are working to leverage our collective strength and bring to scale digital health tools aiming to improve health for vulnerable populations around the world…” (October 2018).
