Digital Square
Connecting the World for Better Health.

Who we are


Digital Square is a partnership of the world's leading digital health experts. 

Together, more than 40 dedicated global health organizations and countries are working to create and sustain digital health systems in emerging economies. 


A town square provides a place where people can meet and tap into the collective energy and ideas of the community. Digital Square provides this forum for the global health sector. 

Partners meet in the Digital Square to seed and grow big ideas for how technology can improve health outcomes in developing countries.
