Project Name: Digital Health Innovation for COVID-19 Response in India (Phase 2)
Project Description: The International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF) has cooperated with Terre des hommes Foundation (Tdh) to implement the Digital Health Innovation for COVID-19 Response in India Project since September 2020. This phase one project was completed on May 31, 2021, and successfully assisted healthcare workers from 75 targeted primary healthcare (PHC) facilities in Ranchi District of Jharkhand State to use digital technology to deliver quality services and comply with infection prevention and control standards to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, COVID-19 is still raging in India, and the healthcare system in Jharkhand State still needs further assistance. Hence, the TaiwanICDF continues to work with Tdh to implement the Digital Health Innovation for COVID-19 Response in India Project (Phase 2) to provide healthcare workers from 120 PHCs in Ranchi, Jharkhand with ongoing support to respond to COVID-19 by utilizing technology and further improve their capacity. Overall, the project includes the following:
1. At least 100 HCWs from 120 PHC facilities have utilized the training modules provided in the HCWs training and monitoring tool for COVID-19 response.
2. 80% of HCWs frequently accessing the chatbot application to receive information on COVID-19 FAQs.
3. At least 60,000 COVID-19 cases suspected cases (symptomatic and asymptomatic) from 120 PHC facilities have been registered and managed by a digitized screening and triage tool.
