Terre des hommes Foundation (Tdh) is the leading Swiss child relief organization, based in Lausanne (Switzerland). Every year our projects support more than 2 million children (3 million in 2016) and their families in over 35 countries. We are part of the Terre des hommes International Federation (TDHIF), with 9 other sister organizations in Switzerland, Europe and Canada.
Terre des hommes-Lausanne is implementing one of West-Africa's largest digital Health project. We have developed the Integrated eDiagnostic Approach (leDA) which combines the use of digital solutions and quality improvement methodologies in Burkina since 2010, in Mali since 2016 and since very recently in Niger. ln Burkina Faso, IeDA covers 40 % of the PHCs of the country and will soon cover 62%. By the end of 2020, the handover process of the existing tools and approaches to the Ministry oh Health will be completed and Tdh will keep develop new tools with the vision that the REC (Registre Electronique de Consultation) is the patient file for all patients, thanks to the digitization of other medical protocols and checklists.
Indeed, IeDA started its digital journey by digitizing the WHO IMCI (integrated Management of Childhood Disease) protocol and quickly expanded to other protocols and checklists, for epidemiological surveillance and maternity-related activities (ANC, child delivery, PNC) and family planning. Next year, point of care testing and innovative medical devices will be added in some of the PHCs in Burkina Faso. An electronic medical record as well as a facility-based stock management application will also be tested. IeDA benefits from multiple partnerships including one on big data with Cloudera and UNIGE.
IeDA won the ODESS prize in July 2019 from the Pierre Fabre foundation e health observatory.

IeDA is currently supported by the Global Fund, GIZ, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, SDC and ITU.
