A HEALTH TECH REVOLUTION REIMAGINED WITH WOMEN IN POVERTY
Our vision is a modern digital landscape that pivots from amplifying health disparities to facilitating health equity pathways for women and their families in extreme poverty.
DHDI establishes interdisciplinary incubation spaces with local civil society actors and communities of women in poverty to design and test women-centered digital strategies. These strategies focus on mitigating social and environmental factors on community health in regions affected by conflict and climate change.
“Previously some of us had not yet used or touched a smartphone. We were afraid-- thinking that the technology was not made for everyone and even more so for us illiterates, but this project familiarizes us with the digital world."

Health Insecurity +Women's Digital Literacy
We integrate women's digital literacy with critical health insecurity issues to reach women traditionally left out of big data & digital economies.
Applying a knowledge, learning and innovation exchange framework, we support co-creation of digital community health innovation with our partners and collaborators.
Confronting Local Data Gaps
We collaborate with communities to create strategies addressing climate health data gaps, prioritizing ethical data generation through a decolonial lens.
