This note outlines key considerations to develop and deploy digital contact tracing tools based on a review of initiatives launched to date to address COVID-19 in various countries and the information available on early lessons.

We briefly touch on case management functionality and tools, which can be used by health and government officials to manage, track, encourage, and educate individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19.
