Zambia Digital Health Dashboard

Ranking 116 out of 139 on the 2016 Networked Readiness Index, Zambia is challenged with infrastructure and a lack of IT skills. It also has a high disease burden, a shortage of health care professionals, and inadequacies in drugs and medical supplies, funding, equipment and infrastructure. These challenges are reflected in the issues facing the country’s eHealth programme, which has struggled with fragmentation, lack of interoperability, poor sustainability of ICT projects , limited human resource capacity and insufficiently developed or underutilized infrastructure. However there is high mobile penetration and an enabling policy environment government, and strong co-operation between partners.
