On 4th April, 2024, The Government of Malawi joined the Digital Public Goods Alliance as a new member. The DPGA is a multi-stakeholder initiative with a mission to accelerate the attainment of sustainable development goals in low- and middle-income countries by facilitating the discovery, development, use of, and investment in digital public goods (DPGs).

The government of Malawi is thrilled to be participating in this mission. As part of the Government’s membership, the following activities will be undertaken 1. Adoption of the DPG Aid Management Platform (AMP) to manage Malawi’s development aid effectiveness, 2. Leverage DPGs to Improve data use in Malawi by upgrading the national health information software and training key staff on its use, 3. Advocating for open-source software in the health and social sector and 4. Advocating for DPGs for digital public infrastructure (DPI) , and how they can play a critical role in helping to achieve the DPGA’s mission and advance the DPG ecosystem overall. This includes participating in the 50-in-5 campaign which brings countries together to share learnings and best practices regarding the implementation of safe, inclusive, and interoperable  DPI.

Government of Malawi’s work aligns with that of the DPGA in the following ways, which will be included as part of the DPGA’s Annual Roadmap:

  • Malawi is committed to enhancing its digital infrastructure, including expanding access to broadband and improving digital literacy. This aligns with the DPGA's goal of promoting the development and use of digital public goods to advance sustainable development.
  • Malawi is working on digital solutions to improve service delivery and access. This aligns with the DPGA's efforts to promote digital public goods in service delivery.
  • Malawi is actively collaborating with international organizations and partners to advance its digital agenda. This mirrors the DPGA's approach of fostering collaboration and partnerships to promote digital public goods.

For Malawi, membership to the Digital Public Goods Alliance means gaining access to knowledge on  open-source software, datasets,  AI systems, content and standards and how to leverage them best. These resources can be harnessed by governments, organizations, and individuals to tackle a range of challenges, from health and education to economic development. By joining the DPGA, Malawi can tap into a global network of digital resources and expertise. This could prove invaluable in addressing the country's development challenges and making meaningful contributions to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
