+Digital allows us to reach more people, with more quality, and use more data to provide more and better services through the digital transformation of the health sector.

The Social Protection and Health Division (SPH) is tasked with the preparation and supervision of Inter-American Development Bank’s (IDB) operations in borrowing member countries in the areas of social protection, health and nutrition. The objective is to advance to a more productive region, with equal opportunities for men and women, and greater inclusion of the most vulnerable groups. This is done through the joined work with the social sector in the areas of education, labor, gender and diversity.

At the IDB, we work to improve lives in Latin America and the Caribbean. Through financial and technical support for countries working to reduce poverty and inequality, we help improve health and education, and advance infrastructure. Our aim is to achieve development in a sustainable, climate-friendly way. With a history dating back to 1959, today we are the leading source of development financing for Latin America and the Caribbean. We provide loans, grants, and technical assistance; and we conduct extensive research. We maintain a strong commitment to achieving measurable results and the highest standards of integrity, transparency, and accountability.
