The Commonwealth Center for Digital Health set up by the Commonwealth Medical Association was launched to serve as the central hub of the Commonwealth Digital Health Network on 20th April 2018 during the 25th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in London, UK.
The Vision of the CWCDH is that all Commonwealth nations will have affordable access to the benefits of Digital Health solutions and services.
The Mission of the CWCDH is to accelerate the uptake of Digital Health solutions and services across all the Commonwealth countries, by • delivering innovative digital health technologies, infrastructure and services including those appropriate for low resource settings; • setting up partnerships to accelerate implementation, achieve scale, improve efficiency and ensure sustainability; • setting up programmes to develop digital health skills through education and training; and • putting in place new financing mechanisms and business models to ensure solution sustainability, based on the commonwealth’s value-based investment guidelines.
The universal goal of the CWCDH is to create a more equitable market across the Commonwealth and incubate Digital Health innovation and venture capital in the best places in order to implement SDG3 focusing on:
- delivering innovative digital health technologies, infrastructure and services appropriate for low resource settings;
- setting up partnerships to implement the new sustainable development agenda, to achieve scale, improve efficiency and develop education and training; and
- putting in place new financing mechanisms and business models based on the Commonwealth’s value-based investment guidelines.
