Reach Digital Health recipient of International Skoll Award for Social Innovation

After 16 years of contributing to strengthening health systems in low to middle-income countries, Reach Digital Health (Reach) says it will continue to maximise its experience as a best-in-class digital health innovator and leverage the award to strengthen its partnerships to improve health across the continent.

The Skoll Foundation’s announcement recognises Reach Digital Health (the only African organisation in the 2023 cohort) “for its accomplishments in driving large-scale, systemic and sustainable change”.

Debbie Rogers, CEO of Reach Digital Health, says, “We are honoured to be a recipient of the prestigious Skoll Award and for the recognition of our work alongside four other incredible organisations.”

“The award will amplify our organisation’s strategic ability to improve health systems, empower more people and have more impact in under-resourced environments. This award would not have been possible without our dedicated partners’ support and our team’s passion and commitment,” adds Rogers.

Reach says that for almost two decades, it has proven the value of harnessing technology, using new approaches for the dramatic change needed to empower citizens to live healthier lives, support and motivate health workers and improve the quality of care when engaging with the health systems.

Through its implementing partners, the organisation contributes towards sustainable impact within 11 countries across health domains such as:

  • HIV / Aids
  • maternal and child health
  • Tuberculosis
  • mental health
  • gender-based violence, and
  • sexual health and rights.

Supported by the Skoll Foundation’s endorsement, Reach will unlock additional growth opportunities, increase its profile as a pan-African entity and foster deeper collaborations between partners and stakeholders — including:

  • health providers
  • partners, and
  • citizens.
