Digital Health has the potential to advance the Sustainable Development Goals, to support health systems in all countries, and to ensure a greater impact on health and disease prevention. Emerging technologies are on the rise and have already made their breakthrough in health and humanitarian settings. The policy landscape is evolving and privacy regulations are changing how we collect and store information. To enlighten us, inspire us, and better prepare us for what’s to come, we have developed an event program to help shape dialogue, discussion, and action. We have thought leaders in the fields of data use and analytics, cloud technologies and artificial intelligence, policy/regulation, and sustainability. Learn how organizations can work together to solve challenges in the international humanitarian and development sector through technology-enabled solutions. Have a look at the event program below, browse the attendee directory and start your networking early!
