Measures for digital uptake

  • KPI (key performance indicators) for digital uptake
  • foster the take-up of digital information
  • introducing the tablet, measuring the use and uptake
  • survey on having taken up the knowledge
  • comments, feedback, suggestions
  • technology acceptance: tablet useful,
  • social acceptance: structure, communication amongst people
  • main function of digital devices: increase communications in health, and thus knowledge uptake
  • from health information towards digital society
  • new technologies for agriculture

How to reach the people on the ground

Aim: Reaching the majority of people

  • first ground work (connectivity mobile phone operators)
  • where to place the equipment: close to market place (once to twice a week) versus equipment close to governmental offices
    • issues of security
  • connecting to regular(?) village meetings
  • use radio messages (2-3 times per week, after some months), newspaper
  • use different places, e.g. churches for health education
  • hospitals with TV set
  • which other content could foster the take-up of health messages
  • Tablet without a person will not work, people struggling to open a device (easy to do at hospital during work hour, complicate for placing the tablet at the market place)
  • who can take care of the equipment (tablet), what are the incentives for providing access, volunteers per tablet
  • security for devices

Health message content

Aspects to be considered for digital content


  • what is what we want to achieve, and?
  • what are the costs involved?
