In light of physical constraints and concerns due to COVID-19, many countries are proactively embracing and exploring new options for advancing access to digital tools and resources to support work, education, and the delivery of important healthcare information. Digital literacy training and skills are crucial to facilitating this transition and to longer-term human capital investments in a country.

USAID aims to ensure equitable access to digital literacy skills and training, particularly for marginalized populations including women, persons with disabilities, and other underrepresented groups. These groups should be supported with safe and responsible access to the Internet and other digital technologies to receive, share, and produce content.
