HCW@Home added to the Digital Public Goods Alliance

Today, HCW@Home was added to the Digital Public Goods Alliance DPG Registry. The goal of the DPGA and its registry is to promote digital public goods in order to create a more equitable world. Being recognised as a DPG increases the visibility, support for, and prominence of open projects that have the potential to tackle global challenges. To become a digital public good, all projects are required to meet the DPG Standard to ensure that projects truly encapsulate open source principles. 

HCW@Home seeks to provide a tool for remote consultation accessible to all. It does this by being open source (100% free to install and use on premise) and optimized for low bandwidth setups, making it ideal for less developed and low income countries.

For us, being recognized as a digital public good - defined as open source software, open data, open AI models, open standards, and open content that adhere to privacy and other applicable laws and best practices, do no harm, and help attain the SDGs - means more visibility and credibility for our target audience - private providers, clinics, NGOs, health departments and institutional healthcare providers.

The Digital Public Goods Alliance is a multi-stakeholder initiative endorsed by the United Nations Secretary-General, working to accelerate the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals in low- and middle-income countries by facilitating the discovery, development, use of, and investment in digital public goods.
