There’s still time to reserve your seat for the February 27 Global Digital Health Network meeting, hosted by Intrahealth.

February’s meeting will focus on the question: What Does It Really Cost to Develop Global Digital Health Goods? This conversation will build off a session held at the 2019 Global Digital Health Forum. This meeting will provide an opportunity to learn more about the costs associated with the development of these Global Digital Health Goods, as well as the ongoing maintenance and support efforts necessary to ensure the sustainability of the impact of these Global Goods over time. USAID has introduced the Software Global Goods Valuation Framework to enable donors, software development organizations, governments, and others to estimate the cumulative development cost for software global goods. Recently the framework valued 3 global digital health goods at $109 million dollars.

Speakers will include:

We’ll dive into new research from USAID and the Boston Consulting Group that analyzed the development costs and maintenance needs of OpenMRS, Commcare, and iHRIS using the Software Global Goods Valuation Framework and how each of us are using this new tool in our global good development process.
