Time for an Upgrade: Using Digital Interventions to Tackle Non-Communicable Diseases

Are there digital health investments that governments can make today to both curb the growth of NCDs and start them on the path of sustainable digital transformation? In this chapter, we focus on vertical or stand-alone digital health applications that have demonstrated effectiveness to reduce some of the region’s biggest burdens of disease: cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and depression.

This is the third chapter of the report "Digitalizing Public Services: Opportunities for Latin America and the Caribbean". This report reviews evidence on available policy options in education, health, transactional services, and fiscal management, providing cost-benefit analyses that will help governments set priorities in their digitalization efforts. Policymakers have at their fingertips a unique opportunity to leverage digital tools that can transform public services in the region. The lessons from this report can guide this journey.
