Jembi's ongoing international projects reflect our steady commitment to digital health transformation. By introducing technologies like the OpenHIM Platform and collaborating with partners, including Fondation Pierre Fabre, we continue to make strides in enhancing healthcare technology.

For the past 15 years, Jembi has focused its efforts in Africa but has recently expanded to countries in South-East Asia. These include test implementations in Indonesia as part of the CHISU project and Sri Lanka with the MoH.

Our journey has been characterised by a persistent effort to enhance healthcare access and health information exchange, particularly in the Global South. This path, while challenging, is one we navigate with a deep sense of purpose and dedication.

Looking ahead, as we prepare our proposal for the OpenHIM Platform, we invite fellow innovators in digital health to join us in answering this funding opportunity. Together, our collective efforts can contribute to meaningful advancements in healthcare technology, particularly in regions that stand to benefit the most.
