Digital Health Compendium: Showcasing Digital Solutions for Family Planning and Reproductive Health

Although investments in digital health solutions for voluntary family planning have expanded exponentially, information on what works (and what does not) has always kept pace. The Digital Health Compendium curates the latest results from projects using digital technology to inform the adoption and scale-up of successful family planning approaches, as well as encouraging learning and adaptation from approaches that were less successful.

Mwezi Oktoba 2020, ya Mradi wa PACE, inayofadhiliwa na U.S. Shirika la Maendeleo ya Kimataifa (USAID), launched the Digital Health Compendium, an interactive site enabling users to explore case studies across a range of digital health solutions to enhance voluntary family planning programs in low and middle-income countries.

As countries transition from paper to digital systems, voluntary family planning programs can benefit from unprecedented opportunities to improve services. Investments in digital health solutions have expanded exponentially, but information on what works—and what does not—remains limited and scattered. This compendium aims to consolidate emerging information on applying digital technology in voluntary family planning programs to inform the adoption and scale-up of successful approaches, as well as encourage learning and adaptation from approaches that were less successful.

The WHO Family Planning Reference App built on OpenSRP
WHO's Accelerator Kits and reference modules aim to give countries the tools and means to more easily and efficiently adapt their guidelines.

The compendium lets a user easily search for case studies based on several factors:

  • Target user for each digital health intervention
  • Building block for the digital health enabling environment
  • Family planning program classification
  • Country location

Case studies are submitted by implementing organizations and designed to provide insights into real-world applications of digital health to inform current and future programs.

DHC Interactive Map
An interactive map allows users to see where case studies have been conducted.

The compendium will be updated regularly with new case studies. Jisajili to receive notifications when new case studies are added, au contact PACE to submit your own. PACE will share a simple template to frame your submission, including the following core components:

  • Partner information
  • Geographic scope
  • Digital health intervention and enabling environment classifications
  • Digital health solution overview
  • Program/project context
  • Evaluation and results data
  • Lessons learned
  • Conclusions
  • References
  • Photos

To accelerate the adoption of digital technology in family planning programs, we need more data and information on the challenges, opportunities, scalability, and results. Submitting information into the Compendium on your project’s use of digital health for family planning is an opportunity to share your learnings with a broad audience of development partners and country stakeholders, and generate insights that support decision-making about current and future programs based on promising practices and real-life lessons.
