New learning paper: Implementing a community digital health platform in Mozambique

29 July, 2022

Dear all,

I’m very pleased to share a new learning paper from Malaria Consortium that might be of interest to you: Implementing a large-scale community digital health platform in Mozambique: Lessons learnt from upSCALE<> (PDF version available here<

Since 2016, Malaria Consortium has been the key implementing partner of a scaled digital community health information system called upSCALE. Led by the Ministry of Health, and funded through our partners at UNICEF, upSCALE provides high-quality, actionable data that facilitate decision-making on health promotion, disease prevention and the provision of primary healthcare. upSCALE has proved to be a supportive, agile platform that can respond to changing contexts and the needs of individuals, thereby promoting improved quality and coverage of health services at the community level.

Our new learning paper reflects on the challenges and successes of implementing upSCALE, and offers recommendations to implementers and governments seeking to establish similar digital health platforms to improve health outcomes.

Please do consider sharing with your networks. If you have any questions or feedback, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
