No. of pages: 182

Publication Date: 2020

Author: WHO, PATH, UNFPA, UNICEF, HRP

The Digital Implementation Investment Guide (DIIG) aims to help governments and technical partners plan a digital health implementation that focuses on one or more health programmes to support national health system goals.

The Guide is designed to walk users of the document step-by-step through planning, costing and implementing digital health interventions within a digital health enterprise. This consists of selecting digital health interventions that are aligned with identified health needs, appropriate to a specific country context and integrated with existing technologies and the broader digital architecture. Users of the Guide will learn from diverse experiences deploying digital health technologies over the past decade and will be guided through a systematic approach to designing, costing and implementing meaningful digital health interventions that are part of a digital health enterprise.

This practical Guide serves as a companion to the “WHO guideline: recommendations on digital interventions for health system strengthening".
