We live in the digital age and new technologies, if used correctly and effectively in the global health arena, can ultimately save lives. More timely, accurate and reliable data can lead to better analysis and decision making. Countless innovative health-related apps have been developed, which provide endless opportunities for capturing data. Many health and humanitarian organizations are using technology-enabled solutions to solve challenges in the international humanitarian and development sector. The advent of emerging technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence are making a difference in the global health sector.
As we can see, there is no shortage of supply when it comes to emerging technologies; and so it becomes key to identify the right technology for any given situation, one which meets the needs of the individual organization in question. Organizations, when presented with an opportunity to collaborate, share experiences, best practices and lessons learnt, can collectively come one step closer to contributing to reach UN Sustainable Development Goal #3: To ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
These topics and many more will be presented and discussed at the Global Digital Development Summit in Geneva, October 28-30,2019.
