Adopting digital health interventions in LMICs

JANUARY 9, 2024 BHH Members Initiatives

Approximately 70% of all cancer deaths worldwide occur in Low-and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs), where health systems are often poorly equipped to handle their growing cancer burden.

Digital health technologies (DHTs) are key to system improvements and can be implemented across the cancer care continuum to facilitate improved access to care, enable real-time quality data, and improve the patient experience.

However, in fragile healthcare systems, the latest digital interventions also have the potential to create excessive financial burden and an unsustainable deployment. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach in implementing technology into systems with resource constraints and limited data capacity.

It’s crucial to know whether a digital solution will be worth the investment.

BHH member City Cancer Challenge Foundation (C/Can) supports cities around the world as they work to improve access to equitable, quality cancer care. The Foundation has developed value-for-money guidance for healthcare professionals, policymakers and funders in Low-and low-middle-income countries to make informed decisions when adopting digital health technologies.

C/Can works closely with healthcare professionals from its network of cities to support the development of successful digital transformation projects. These collaborations help to define the processes to be digitized, design the technical requirements, build the capacity of users, and develop policy mandates. The guidance for value assessment is a user-friendly toolkit to support this entire process. The aim is to reduce complexity throughout procurement, add transparency and drive sustainable adoption.

The guidance is free and available in both English and Spanish.

If you’d like to find out more, or work with the framework, please reach out to the Project Coordinator for Digital Health at C/Can HERE.
