ABOUT US

 

Who we are

The Digital Health Centre of Excellence - or DICE - is a mechanism to deliver agile and coordinated technical assistance to National Governments on sustainable and scalable deployment of carefully chosen mature digital health solutions that address health priorities in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and post-pandemic health systems needs.
 
The aim is to ensure more equitable coverage of quality health services, including vaccines, maternal and child health services, and nutrition investments through increased use of data and evidence.
 
DICE will also align with donor agencies and support governments to identify and apply for funding for deployments using costed investment cases.

DICE is not a funding mechanism, but can support country governments with immediate, coordinated technical assistance and advise on digital solutions design and the planning needed for implementation in the COVID-19 context - from planning the distribution of diagnostics, treatments and vaccines to monitoring coverage of services, and communicating to reach people and reduce misinformation.

Technical assistance will be provided through existing regional and country structures and a roster of technical experts. DICE can also support with coordinating between donors and development partners at the regional and global levels.

Our Principles

DEMAND DRIVEN Prioritizing country support that aligns with needs outlined by National Governments, such as in the National Deployment and Vaccination Plans (NDVPs) for COVID-19 vaccines.
 

AGILE Establishing contracting mechanisms with approved vendors and technical experts to allow for a rapid response to country priorities.
 

SUSTAINABLE Supporting Governments to use existing systems and resources to deploy cost-effective digital solutions with COVID-19 specific functions, which can be expanded for other health priorities and integrated into the health management information system.
 

SECURE  Safeguarding the global principles of digital development by only endorsing digital platforms that apply acceptable security standards for patient privacy and cyber security.
 

CAPACITY BUILDING Providing guidance and technical assistance to Governments on digital health investments, including vendor selection, platform set-up, training and maintenance.
