This opening session ‘set the scene’ by discussing the challenges and opportunities for scaling inclusive digital health tools.

During this second session, we examined three concrete digital health interventions: what did they achieve and what was the role of the private sector?

Let’s talk about the pitfalls and successes in setting up and running digital health projects such as Take Care Africa and the Lighthouse Initiative India.

In 2012, the WHO/ITU’s created a guiding digital health system framework to help define a well-functioning digital health system.

The DCCC in collaboration with Transform Health, drafted a position paper for the UN General Assembly 2020.

Governing health futures 2030: Growing up in a digital world is exploring the convergence of digital health and artificial intelligence with universal health coverage to support attainment of the SDG3 and bolster the future health of children and young people. 

Transform Health has launched a report that makes the case for digital health and how digital technologies can support the achievement of UHC but also the barriers that need to be overcome in order for the digital technologies and data to improve—and not undermine—health equity. 

The Principles for Digital Health Inclusion set out in this report complement the larger principles of the EDISON Alliance in order to encourage thoughtful action in its focus areas of finance, education and health. 

In 2015, the UN adopted the 2030 Agenda for 17 Sustainable Development (SDGs). Goal 3.8 sets out the goal for achieving universal health coverage.
