A Health Tech Revolution Reimagined With Women in Poverty
DHDI envisions technology as an operational pathway to disrupt one size fits all responses to actionable community health threats with women in conflict & climate-impacted settings.
Building Innovative Strategies
DHDI applies a knowledge, learning and innovation exchange framework to support co-creation of digital community health innovation with our partners and collaborators.
Our Focus Areas
Women-led Climate Health Networks
Focusing on the integration of digital inclusion & health security, we emphasize hybrid strategies that enable women from lower socio-economic positions to lead community health resilience efforts in context.
Decolonial Data Ecosystems At Community Level
Capacity building with local civil society partners towards more localized data strategies, including digital data governance, to inform slow onset community health crises.
EpiNu Photovoice- DR Congo
In DR Congo, acute malnutrition rates jumped from 15.6 million in 2019 to 27 million in 2021. Climate impacts on local agriculture is one of the underlying drivers of this deteriorating nutrition security situation. DHDI is partnering with CEAFPD in South Kivu to develop digital community responses with women to mitigate this climate change reality.
EpiNu Photovoice, currently ongoing in DR Congo, provides a hybrid platform for women to engage in digital storytelling related to food & nutrition insecurity.
