REGISTER NOW for the Global Digital Health Forum: Harnessing Digital Health Innovations

The third annual Global Digital Health Forum (formerly the Global mHealth Forum), focusing on digital and connected health in low and middle income countries (LMICs), will convene December 13-14, co-located with the 2016 Connected Health Conference at the Gaylord Conference Center in National Harbor, Maryland just across from Washington, DC. 


The forum brings together public and private sector organizations to share the latest evidence, experiences, and lessons learned on new applications and approaches in digital health. This two-day event is presented by the Personal Connected Health Alliance in partnership with the Global Digital Health Network and USAID.


The Global Digital Health Forum attracts a diverse group of program managers, implementers, policy makers, mobile and technology providers, and private and public sector health providers, as well as entrepreneurs, investors, funders and researchers working in LMICs. The objectives of the Forum are to enhance the capacity of governments, donors, civil society, NGOs, and social entrepreneurs to design, implement, and evaluate digital health initiatives in LMICs; and, to provide a space for global health stakeholders working in LMICs to network and share knowledge.


Join the Forum to engage in interactive sessions with digital health experts from around the world.  Meet with stakeholders to explore emerging trends and state of the art digital health tools for LMICs.  Be part of the conversation to network and share experiences with NGOs, social entrepreneurs, donors, local governments and civil society.
