Digital health technology has the potential to broaden the reach and strengthen the capacity and efficiency of health systems in countries where a high disease burden and a lack of health system capacity impede efforts to provide effective, high-quality healthcare. Do the women religious who provide leadership, management, and care in Catholic and other faith-based health facilities have the needed skills to introduce these technologies in their facilities?  To answer this question, CMMB partnered with KPMG and Health Enabled to conduct a landscape analysis and capacity assessment of selected women religious in six countries. The first phase of the project has been completed. A proposed second phase will build the capacity of religious women and pilot the introduction of digital technology in two locations.
