This program has consistently demonstrated improved health outcomes, an enhanced community health system, and increased use of data in decision-making. Over time, Jamii ni Afya has grown from a pilot program to a national program and has shown how digital technology can change the quality of the health system.
The Zanzibar government has committed to adopting the Jami Ni Aya at the national level; Integrate digitally empowered CHVs into their formal community health strategy. This represents the world’s first ever digital community health program to be scaled nationally, delivering quality health services to the doorsteps of all of Zanzibar. The digital health program reached its full scale in August 2021, allowing D-tree to focus on the program’s sustainability, quality and impact. Senior Government Advisor Job
