digital gender gaps & community health

 

Global evidence demonstrates the next iteration of the digital gender gap is well underway: women who have access to mobiles but are not utilizing the Internet.

DHDI's response to this is closing the digital gender gap while building a modern lever of community power: community digital health data governance. 

DHDI incubates community digital health strategies that place socially marginalized women at the center. This includes women who remain largely invisible-- the unbanked, the chronically food insecure, intimate partner violence survivors among others socially marginalized-- in humanitarian & development settings. 

Digital privacy, ethics, and community data ownership mechanisms are central building blocks of DHDI's work.
