Digital Square supports investments into various digital health tools which are Global Goods.

Digital health tools which are global goods are software that is (usually) Free and Open Source (FOSS), supported by a strong community, has a clear governance structure, funded by multiple sources, deployed at significant scale, used in multiple countries, has demonstrated effectiveness, is designed to be interoperable and is an emergent standard application.

To help identify areas of investments for global goods, Digital Square is developing a Global Good Maturity Model for digital health tools. We have engaged the digital health community in the development of this model, in particular the Digital Health and Interoperability Working Group of the Health Data Collaborative.

Currently, the maturity model is in draft (beta) form and a release candidate will be presented at the Global Digital Health Forum.
