Call to action: Global Digital Health Monitor
Member News

The Global Digital Health Monitor is an interactive digital resource that tracks, monitors, and evaluates the use of digital technology for health across countries. It has recently been adopted as the official digital health maturity model by the Global Initiative on Digital Health, hosted by the World Health Organization. Help us mobilize more countries to complete the Monitor!

About the Global Digital Health Monitor

The aim of the global digital health monitor is to:

  • Monitor and improve quality of digital health at the country level
  • Track progress towards comprehensive and integrated digital health systems 
  • Identify areas of funding and technical assistance needs within and across countries  
  • Encourage better alignment among policy makers, donors, and implementers in the digital health field in alignment with the Principles for Digital Development and Donor Alignment for Digital Health
  • Highlight potential areas of risk for investment at the country level

In early 2016, HealthEnabled and the Global Development Incubator (GDI) partnered with Dalberg’s Design Impact Group (DIG), ThoughtWorks, and representatives from 20+ countries and 50+ international agencies and organizations to design the Global Digital Health Index (GDHI).

In 2022, the tool underwent a year-long indicator and platform review and redesign process to align the indicators with the WHO Global Digital Health Strategy as a complement to the WHO Digital Health Atlas and includes a greater focus on AI, equity, gender, and Universal Health Coverage. In addition, the name was changed to GDHM to articulate the tool’s value in providing a platform to monitor digital health progress at the country, regional and global levels. The updated GDHM includes year on year performance monitoring country visualizations, regional visualizations, and country to country comparisons.
