Announcing the first Virtual Global Digital Health Forum – abstract submissions are now closed!
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty for the remainder of 2020, the Global Digital Health Forum 2020 will be held in a virtual format. The Forum will be held around the originally planned dates, December 7-9, 2020. Additional details will be shared soon.
The theme for the Global Digital Health Forum 2020 is Digital Health – Making it work for everyone.
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.
