COVID-19 Map & Match

DIGITAL SQUARE RECOGNIZES A COORDINATED APPROACH TO DIGITAL INVESTMENTS IS ESSENTIAL TO QUICKLY SCALE ACCESS TO TIME-SENSITIVE DATA AND INFORMATION NEEDED TO INFORM AN EFFECTIVE DISEASE OUTBREAK RESPONSE. Without this critical alignment of funding to existing digital health infrastructure, there is a risk of deepening fragmentation of digital tools and data silos that could hamper COVID-19response efforts and undermine health systems. As the world learned during the West Africa Ebola outbreak response, prioritizing the reuse and adaptation of existing digital tools is vital to quickly scale access to time-sensitive disease information and data. The USAID-funded Map & Match project helps countries, donors, implementing partners, and the global digital health community at large to leverage and adapt existing digital tools in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
