Millennia2015 and UniversalDoctor will collaborate to disseminate multilingual eHealth applications dedicated to women’s issues (see more about UniversalWomen initiative below) and a new tool for Nurses, UniversalNurses.
With 484 experts from over 65 countries organized into regional communities and international working groups, Millennia2015’s main objectives are to reinforce and promote women’s empowerment and their full participation in political, economic and social decisions with respect to human rights and gender equality. Millennia2015 achieves this through prospective research and investigation; they have identified 37 critical variables on which they organize research and conferences. One of these is a two-year study on Women, Health and ICTs and the intersection across these three domains.
Millennia2015 is currently holding their 2nd International Conference at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris on 3 and 4 December 2012, during which they will release the results of this global research and finalize their “Action Plan for Women’s Empowerment”. You can view the full agenda here (UNESCO conference link).
UniversalDoctor will be there, presenting the aim of our collaboration: UniversalNurses and UniversalWomen to tackle language barriers between Nurses and Patients, and Health Professionals and pregnant Women, by producing comprehensive multilingual eHealth solutions.
