Tanzania’s new digital health road map offers a pioneering example of “putting national government in the driver’s seat” and of systems based approaches to e-health, experts say. Tanzanian officials unveiled the investment road map, which outlines a range of digital health interventions for using data to improve health services and outcomes, during the Global Digital Health Forum 2016, held in Virginia. The Tanzanian road map is significant, according to digital health experts, because it is unusual to see such a broad, system-wide digital health approach and one which is being government-led.
