Digital technologies are changing the ways in which health and social care are accessed and provided. Young professionals, as digital natives, have unique perspectives about what digital health brings to health, including greater diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in healthcare.
The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the importance of digital health solutions to help counter this health emergency and improve equitable access to care. However, the pandemic also laid bare the inequities that exist in global health and showed the limitations of current healthcare systems to adopt digital health solutions.
This HYPER and Governing Health Futures 2030: Growing up in a digital world webinar, “Digital health solutions to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion,” invites young leaders to discuss the role of innovative digital solutions to address health inequity. The event will showcase digital innovations that are already embedding DEI principles into their design, as well as best practices to adopt these.
Join this webinar to learn how digital health tools can help move the needle on health equity and improve the lives of people for a more diverse, equitable, inclusive – and healthier – world.
