Monthly Meetings

The Global Digital Health Network holds regular meetings–both in-person and virtual–each month to discuss promising approaches, challenges and lessons learned, where invited speakers present on topics of interest to the group. The Network also hosts deep dives to further explore important topics in a hands-on context. Presentation slides and meeting recaps are shared on the Network listserv so members are informed of both the presentation topics and discussion among participants.
