Who we are
D-tree International is a global digital health organization dedicated to ensuring that everyone has access to high equality primary healthcare in underserved areas. We do this by working with governments to design, build and deploy digital tools for front line health workers that improve their ability to deliver high equality, evidenced based care.

D-tree engages with governments to develop a shared vision for the potential of digital health, demonstrates
the effectiveness of digital systems to improve health outcomes, and accompanies governments to scale these
digital systems nationally and institutionalize them within their broader health systems.

D-tree is among the most experienced digital health partners in Tanzania, having worked with the government and
multiple NGO partners since 2008 on a wide range of digital health programs focused on improving the quality of
healthcare delivery. We are currently collaborating with the Tanzanian government on a digitally demanded primary health care program in Kibaha, which has gained significant interest and is poised to strengthen a number of
government digital health systems in Tanzania.

We are also engaged in an Early Childhood Development (ECD)
research collaboration in which we are designing digital tools to facilitate an integrated community a based ECD
parenting program. Recently, we began engaging as the digital health partner in a large-scale community health
HIV/to program. As our portfolio in the digital community health space continues to grow, we have an opportunity to expand our engagement with the national government to serve as a key digital health partner for strengthening primary health care services.

This is an exciting opportunity to help deepen and expand our work and impact.
