2020 Global Digital Health Forum

The theme for this year’s event is Digital Health – Making it work for everyone.

Digital health can be the great leveler – it can give anyone access to information about health and disease.  But sometimes, it can unfairly exclude.  How do we give opportunity to the poorest of the poor, people in fragile settings, women, young people, people with disabilities, and people with diverse sexual and gender identities and expressions?  How do we make life easier for overburdened health care workers and caregivers who are caring for the whole child, not just the “ill’ part of the child?  How do we address these issues alongside the realities of pandemics, like COVID-19, and climate change, that are changing our lives on a daily basis?  This year’s Forum will explore all of these issues and more.

Abstract submission for the Forum closed in July 2020. The Forum will have engaging sessions to connect government stakeholders, digital health technologists, researchers, donors, implementers and field experts from across the globe. The Forum will once again feature TED-style talks, panel presentations, hands-on workshops, deep-dive lab sessions, the interactive “Appy Hour”, vendor tables, and an opportunity to showcase your work on a poster.

With our change to an online format, we accepted sessions in French and Spanish based on the demand we have seen from previous years for sessions to be held in additional languages. We believe this ties in nicely with our theme this year, Digital Health – Making it work for everyone.
