7th Global Digital Health Forum to be held virtually; December 7th-9th

The Global Digital Health Network will convene the Global Digital Health Forum 2020 - the leading global industry networking and relationship-building opportunity for technology vendors, donors, researchers, government representatives, and implementing organizations working in low- and middle-income countries to advance public health outcomes from December 7-9.

The theme for this year's event - making digital health work for everyone - seeks to balance the need for evidence-based scaling of proven systems with the urgent need to determine how emerging technologies and approaches can dramatically improve health outcomes for all.

For the first time ever, The Global Digital Health Forum will be a virtual event, with capacity for 3,000 attendees. The Network is leveraging this opportunity to make the Global Digital Health Forum itself work for everyone, with increased participation from the Americas, Africa, and Asia, sessions in English, French, and Spanish, and waived conference fees for participants from Low- and middle- income countries and students.

Over three days, participants will discuss issues such as: How to 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 to make life easier for overburdened health care workers and caregivers who are caring for the whole child and how to address the above issues alongside the realities of pandemics and climate change. 

Created in 2009, the Global Digital Health Network is a 4000+ person-strong networking forum for members from 117 countries to share information, engage with the broader community, and provide leadership in digital health for global public health.
