Special Session on Women and eHealth

millennia2015_wehealth_220px

The objective of the Women and eHealth session is to highlight the crucial role of women in eHealth and Telemedicine and their unrecognized capacity as builders of alternative futures, based on characteristics such as an innate future orientation, capacity to mediate and to network at all levels, capacity to be social actors, to face natural catastrophes and human conflicts by creating solidarity among women. Based on the results of the WeHealth study, the session will cover various perspectives of women in eHealth and Telemedicine, with a focus on their place and roles in this arena.

The session will consist of a series of discussion panels, in order to design a global mapping of the roles and places of women within the arena of eHealth and Telemedicine. At the end of the session, a ceremony will formally launch the ISfTeH Working Group on Women (WoW) and participants will be invited to continue the dialogue during an open cocktail.
