Digital Public Good

The Digital Public Goods Alliance has recognized Primero as an open-source technology that follows best practices, respects data privacy, and holds high relevance towards attaining the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Primero’s open source license means that the platform is free to use, and that source code is open for public review and collaboration.

Eliminating exclusive access and control of the system source code also enforces the security of sensitive beneficiary data, allowing partners and stakeholders to inspect and critique how the system works and how data is handled. Such transparency, in turn, increases trust and partner buy-in. Therefore, by leveraging open source technology, we can implement an information management system in a cost-effective, transparent, and sustainable manner
