In this paper, we analyse through a largely conceptual analysis the application of the Aadhaar biometrics identification system in India, now assuming complex proportions, and how that facilitates or not citizen’s entitlement of welfare benefits. The conceptual analysis is informed by the works of James Scott’s Seeing like a State which cautions against such large scale state sponsored schemes ending up as disasters. Amartya Sen’s analysis of famines informs how it is important to focus on the a...

To support global humanitarian organizations in carrying out interventions in project sites, information is needed that is situationally relevant and timely, while also being relevant to the HQs. The macro-level formal institutional conditions of the HQ and informal constraints at the project sites shape the design and content of Humanitarian Health Management Information Systems (HHMIS), and we focus in the paper on the aspect of information use. We use an ensemble view of the HHMIS, comprising...

The purpose of this paper is to explore tensions in global public goods (GPG), based on the case of digital platforms for innovation. GPG designs promise normative ideals of non-rivalry and non-exclusivity, which in practice are challenged in reality and fraught with tensions. This paper draws on theory of contradictions to illustrate some of these tensions, which confronts simplistic and linear views that implementing GPG health management platforms will translate unproblematically to efficienc...

In the process of strengthening health systems, a lack of health-informatics capacity within low- and middle-income country settings is a considerable challenge. Many capacity-development initiatives on health informatics exist, most of which focus on the adoption of eHealth tools by front-line health-care workers. By contrast, there are only a few programmes that focus on empowering medical doctors in low- and middle-income countries to become champions of digital health innovation and adoption...

Devolution of government functions is becoming widespread in developing countries. However, its effects on health information systems are not well understood. To gain more understanding, a study was conducted in Kenya, a country that has recently adopted devolution and is implementing a new web-based health information system; the District Health Information System (DHIS2). The empirical data for this study were obtained from extensive desk reviews, participant observations and key informant int...
