Helping to grow a cadre of tech-savvy leaders, software developers, and digitally-literate healthcare workers in Africa.

The African Alliance for Digital Health Networks (African Alliance) provides a platform to cultivate the human capacity needed to develop strong national digital health systems. Promoting country ownership of digital innovation and offering a hub for south-south learning, the African Alliance fosters the sustainability of investments made through Digital Square.

The African Alliance leverages the strengths of local, national, and regional networks that already exist through: 

  • Building tangible skills via webinars, in-person trainings, and online courses.
  • Incubating and growing digital health experts and champions through fellowships for Ministries of Health and Ministries of ICT. 
  • Creating opportunities for peer learning through events like hackathons.

The African Alliance is supported by the East Africa Health Research Commission (EAHRC), GBCHealth, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD), the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the World Health Organization (WHO), and others.
