OpenSRP named a Global Good by Digital Square

We are very excited to announce that OpenSRP is now a Global Good! It is wonderful to receive recognition for the years of hard work put in by the many OpenSRP community members and contributors.

OpenSRP was named a winner of Digital Square’s 2018 Notice B Open Proposal round and is now classified as a Global Good. The proposal, titled “Packaging OpenSRP for scale and community-driven national adoption”, was one of 29 proposals that made it to the final round for consideration. Winners receive funding specifically earmarked for core platform improvements and updates and recognition in the ICT4D community as a Global Good. Funding from Digital Square will be used to improve core functionality of the platform and help to better productize the software, making it easier for new groups to join the OpenSRP community and leverage the collective work of its members.

The Ona team would like to thank their partners who made this possible: WHO, Interactive Health Solutions, mPower Social Enterprises, Ltd., Summit Institute of Development, Harvard School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins Global mHealth Initiative, PATH, and BlueCode.
