Thanks so much for those who joined our June 7th meeting on "Why Interoperability Matters to You", hosted by IntraHealth International.

 

Later this month, on Wednesday, June 20th 9:30am-11:30am, come learn from the U.S. Agency for International Development's (USAID's) Center for Accelerating Innovation and Impact (CII) about how unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are being applied in global health and ways that the UAV community is working together to shape and move this market forward. UAVs have the potential to make significant impact in global health, and a broad community of funders, innovators and implementers have the opportunity to align future efforts to address the most pressing challenges and advance the most promising use cases of UAVs in global health supply chains. This session will highlight CII's recently developed UAVs in Global Health: Defining a Collective Path Forward, a report that lays out an investment roadmap to align stakeholders and accelerate progress toward a cost-effective and sustainable role for UAVs in development. The session will also feature speakers from UAV-focused organizations. RSVP now!

 

 

Looking ahead to July, please join us Friday, July 20 9:00am - 10:30am at Abt Associates in Rockville, MD to learn about the use of Machine Learning in Public Health. What does it mean to use machine learning in the context of international health? There is a lot of discussion around the vast potential that AI, Natural Language Processing, and Big Data can bring to industries around the world. But how can we use these tools in low and middle income countries where resources are limited, connectivity is challenging, and reliable data is sparse?  While there are unique challenges in applying these technology advancements to global digital health, there are also immense opportunities. Join us for some lively talk and hands-on demonstrations of machine learning in action: from the simple (use of Google sheets and Twitter) to the sophisticated (Python algorithms for NLP). 

Please RSVP here
