Global Digital Health Forum 2016

Harnessing Digital Health Innovations

The third annual Global Digital Health Forum (formerly the Global mHealth Forum), focusing on digital and connected health in low and middle income countries (LMICs), took place December 13-14 2016, co-located with the 2016 Connected Health Conference at the Gaylord Conference Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

The forum brought together public and private sector organizations to share the latest evidence, experiences, and lessons learned on new applications and approaches in digital health. This two-day event was co-presented by the Personal Connected Health Alliance, the Global Digital Health Network and USAID.

The Global Digital Health Forum attracts a diverse group of program managers, implementers, policy makers, mobile and technology providers, and private and public sector health providers, as well as entrepreneurs, investors, funders and researchers working in LMICs. The objectives of the Forum are to enhance the capacity of governments, donors, civil society, NGOs, and social entrepreneurs to design, implement, and evaluate digital health initiatives in LMICs; and, to provide a space for global health stakeholders working in LMICs to network and share knowledge. 

We will be sharing recaps from sessions and all presentations. Please check back in January.
