Organization Description: D-tree International is a leading digital health organization. We work to improve the quality of health systems in low and middle- income countries by exploiting digital technology in innovative ways. We are an interdisciplinary organization, working at the intersection of global health and technology. Expertise in both domains is essential to design and deploy systems which are both appropriate to particular contexts and effective in improving health outcomes. D-tree has been working in Zanzibar since 2010 on projects focused on maternal and child health. In close collaboration with the Zanzibar Ministry of Health, D-tree has trained more than 400 Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) who serve more than 80% of the population as part of the Safer Deliveries program. D-tree has scaled up this program throughout all of Zanzibar to support Community Health Volunteers to utilize digital tools to provide high quality care to pregnant women to encourage facility deliveries and postpartum follow up in order to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality. Data generated as a by-product of the care delivered is visualized on program dashboards and supervisory apps to support the Ministry of Health to use data for decision-making and improve program management and planning. Building on the success of the Safer Deliveries program, D-tree anticipates receiving two additional grants to expand and institutionalize the digital platform in Zanzibar. Over the next three years, D-tree will support the Ministry of Health in integrating child health counseling, care, and referrals into the digital health platform to support CHVs in providing care to under-five children. Additionally, we will adapt the platform for Zanzibar’s urban population and introduce the program into Zanzibar’s Urban district and urban parts of neighboring West District. As we expand the health content and geographical coverage of our program, we will significantly increase the number of CHVs involved in our program— from 400 to 1,300. Finally, we will partner with community health and health system strengthening partners to support the Ministry of Health in laying the foundation for institutionalizing the digital health platform. This includes supporting the MOH in developing guidance around community health volunteers, building MOH capacity to absorb responsibility for the digital health platform, and devising sustainable financing and management mechanisms.
