Focus Theme for this year

Digitalization of Government

Potential innovations that enhance cognitive capacity also pose new regulatory and ethical challenges for business, government, social institutions and international organisations.

"Implementing a comprehensive framework for accountability, roles, decision-making, and change management authority, organizations can ensure that their digital presence is effectively managed and aligned with business goals."

Health Care Solutions

Solutions that identify and address health issues before they become more serious and costly to treat.
Any technology, including medical devices, IT systems, algorithms, artificial intelligence (AI), cloud and blockchain, designed to support healthcare organizations.

"A much-needed step to help increase access to quality healthcare for all, heightened transparency into the medical life cycle is key."

District Development Model

The purpose of this restructuring is to improve service delivery by promoting effective and coordinated collaboration among all levels of government, ranging from local municipalities to national government.

This initiative is aimed at addressing the existing problems with service delivery by creating a more seamless and integrated approach across different spheres of government.

"Build government capacity to support municipalities. Strengthen monitoring and evaluation at district and local levels."
