2020 Global Digital Health Forum: Digital Health – Making it work for everyone
December 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Digital health can be the great leveler – it can give anyone access to information about health and disease. But sometimes, it can unfairly exclude. How do we give opportunity to the poorest of the poor, people in fragile settings, women, young people, people with disabilities, and people with diverse sexual and gender identities and expressions? How do we make life easier for overburdened health care workers and caregivers who are caring for the whole child, not just the “ill’ part of the child? How do we address these issues alongside the realities of pandemics, like COVID-19, and climate change, that are changing our lives on a daily basis? This year’s Forum will explore all of these issues and more. The Forum will have engaging sessions to connect government stakeholders, digital health technologists, researchers, donors, implementers and field experts from across the globe. The Forum will once again feature TED-style talks, panel presentations, hands-on workshops, deep-dive lab sessions, the interactive “Appy Hour”, vendor tables, and an opportunity to showcase your work on a poster.
