PLH Implementers App Updates December 2022 - February 2023

Reporting by Dr Ohad Green, Digital Systems Fellow


Over the past two months, the team has taken concrete exploratory steps towards a PLH Implementers App. During this period we prepared and submitted an ethics application for the scoping phase of our study, titled ''Towards a PLH implementers app: Exploring what exists, understanding what is needed''. We also started initial discussions with various PLH stakeholders about how digital tools can help to overcome implementation challenges through all implementation stages and for different roles. The next step will be interviewing PLH facilitators from different countries to understand their needs and think together about what they would like to see in the first version of the app as well as the most needed components. This includes extensive preparatory qualitative work, relying on the person-based approach to intervention development, as well as the IDEAS framework.
