Increasing investments in emerging technologies across low- and-middle income countries have created unprecedented opportunities to leverage digital innovations to enhance voluntary family planning programs. In particular, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to gain new insights into family planning and optimize decision-making can have a lasting impact on programs, services, and users. Current advances in AI are just the beginning. As these approaches and tools are refined, practitioners should not miss the opportunity to apply AI to expand the reach of family planning programs and strengthen their impact.
Recent updates to digital health case studies highlight ways programs have changed in the past decade, revealing insights on sustainability and scalability.
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.
