About Us

Our Strategy for delivering high-quality, cost-effective community health through and with digitally empowered, equipped, supplied, supervised, and compensated CHWs requires that we continuously re-invent the way we work. Innovating incessantly and with swift responsiveness to global trends is, therefore, a critical success factor for building a thriving and sustainable LG of today and tomorrow.

Over the last four years, Living Goods has become a more complex organization with multiple implementation modes, exciting opportunities in new countries, and new partnerships in existing countries. Furthermore, while we have delivered some strong work over the last couple of years in technology, we now need to go the extra mile beyond technology and ensure a much greater emphasis on government partnerships in the broader digital health space. We can only do this by building a great place to work where our teams thrive, grow, and deliver extraordinary results.

Project: Scale up of the electronic Community Health Information System (eCHIS)

In the effort to harmonize the community digital health ecosystem, the Ministry of Health (MoH) Uganda, with support from partners, developed a national system – the electronic Community Health Information System (eCHIS) to support VHTs in the delivery of integrated health services at the community level. The eCHIS uses a basic clinical decision support system (CDSS) to provide consistent and accurate diagnosis and subsequent treatment, as well as smart workflows for VHTs. The application also enables VHTs to collect data that is compatible and integrated with the government District Health Information Software 2 (DHIS2).

Living Goods will be supporting the Ministry of Health Uganda to scale up the electronic Community Health Information System (eCHIS) to 2450 VHTs in the districts of Oyam, Lira District, Amuru, Nebbi, Maracha and Koboko by December 2023.
