Innovative digital approaches are increasingly being used to facilitate good governance in the health sectors of low and middle income countries, but evidence of their effectiveness is still limited.

Many digital good governance interventions are driven by an assumption that transparency alone will effect change; however responsive feedback mechanisms are also likely to be necessary.
