Global Digital Health Forum 2017


Thanks to the more than 550 attendees who made this year's Global Digital Health Forum another success!

Thank you to all of our sponsors! Recap the conversation via Twitter #GDHF2017 @The_GDHN.

Did you attend the Global Digital Health Forum? Are you an active member of the Network who would like to share your thoughts, offer to speak or host at an upcoming 2018 monthly meeting? Please take a few moments to complete our brief survey!

The theme for this year’s Forum—The Evolving Digital Health Landscape: Progress, Achievements, and Remaining Frontiers—captures the spirit of progress made in the past several years to scale digital health systems and also encourages us to look critically at the continued need for innovation, as well as integration, to improve health outcomes in a changing political landscape.

The Global Digital Health Network and PCHA hosted another diverse event with engaging sessions to connect government stakeholders, digital health developers, researchers, donors, implementers and field experts from across the globe. The Forum featured panel presentations, hands-on workshops, poster presentations and the interactive “Appy Hour”. New this year were TED-style talks, facilitated expert round-table discussions, and digital health labs.
