About HealthEnabled

There is enormous potential for digital technologies to save lives, extend the reach of healthcare services and reduce healthcare costs. However, while thousands of pilots have been implemented, many countries face persistent challenges in implementing sustainable digital health solutions at scale. This is where we come in. Recognizing the complexity of implementing effective digital health interventions, HealthEnabled was launched to activate effective integrated digital health systems and supportive health policies in low- and middle-income countries.

We partner with international organizations and national governments to:

  • Increase digital health maturity and effective data use in countries and globally through standard approaches to performance monitoring and professionalization of digital health
  • Promote collective advocacy, action, impact, and research in digital health and data use through thought leadership and evidence translation
  • Develop digital health and data use strategies at global-level, national, and sub-national and support operationalization through systematic costing, capacity building, and monitoring and evaluation

We play three roles:

  • Connector We are a neutral, trusted facilitator among governments, top digital health experts, health implementers, and donors.
  • Expert Advisor We have significant experience and expertise in digital health to guide policy-making and the design and implementation of digital health solutions in low- and middle-income countries.
  • Knowledge Hub We share the latest information, advice, and technologies in digital health.

HealthEnabled operates out of Cape Town, South Africa as well as Washington, D.C. in the United States. Our presence in Africa allows us to be close to projects and governments on the continent. We have an incubation partnership with the Global Development Incubator (GDI) (based out of Washington, D.C. and New York City in the United States), which allows us to be close to large public health implementers and donors.
