You’re Invited! Making Digital Health Work, a special UN General Assembly Side Event 9/26/18

Numerous digital health projects have been piloted over the past 20 years and, as a result, many valuable lessons have been learned. Devices are becoming smarter at lower costs, which both enables new methods for diagnosing, treating and managing health issues, and also catalyzes more efficient and effective means for community health workers to support their clients. New technologies like artificial intelligence also have the potential to expand access and drive improvements across the continuum of care.

Governments are realizing the benefits of digital technologies, especially in the health sector, and are discussing how they can pay for these improvements.

Is this the moment we have been working towards? What will it take to make digital health work for all?
