Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), eHealth and mHealth have become key strategies for advancing women’s health in both developed and developing countries where health care access and costs are major concerns. These technologies also play a great role in improving the health care system as a whole.
In Geneva on May 22nd, there will be a roundtable called “Scaling up eHealth projects to advance women’s health” that will showcase mHealth pilot projects, their impact and the sustainable solutions for their scaling up beyond the pilot phase.
Experienced players from public and private sectors, as well as civil society and development organizations, will further discuss the related issues, identify common interests for developing win-win collaborations and create synergies with current global initiatives on Women’s Health and ICTs.
UniversalDoctor Project will be presented by its founder and will propose opportunities for win-win collaborations to enhance women’s health based on innovation, technology and communication.
This roundtable will brief the ministers and global health professionals attending the World Health Assembly to better understand how, beyond field experiences, ICTs can benefit women’s health. It will also highlight their role in creating the enabling environment to make it happen.
