The third annual Global Digital Health Forum (formerly the Global mHealth Forum) will be held December 13-14 2016 at the Gaylord Conference Center in National Harbor, Maryland. Co-organized by the Global Digital Health Network and the Personal Connected Health Alliance, supported by USAID and other sponsors, the Forum brings together public and private sector organizations to share the latest evidence, experiences, and lessons learned on new applications and approaches in digital health in low and middle income countries (LMICs).
CCP co-chairs the Global Digital Health Network and is a Forum sponsor. Several CCP staff members will present during the following sessions:
- GO/No-Go! A digital health decision-making card game: James Bon Tempo, Director of ICT and Innovation
- Incorporating Entertainment Education into Your Digital Program Design: Caroline Jacoby, Senior Program Officer
- Content Adaptation: Designing for the User: Lisa Mwaikambo, Senior Program Officer and Caitlin Loehr, Program Officer
Attracting a diverse group of over 500 program managers, implementers, policy makers, mobile and technology developers, and private and public sector health providers – as well as entrepreneurs, investors, funders and researchers working in LMICs — the Forum offers a unique opportunity to engage and collaborate with organizations driving digital health efforts in the most remote areas.
Leading up to the Forum, the Knowledge for Health (K4Health) project is co-hosting a tweet chat on November 15 at 9:30 – 10:30 am to discuss the role of digital health in building community across borders. Please note that the Global Digital Health Network’s twitter handle is @The_GDHN and the hashtag for the tweet chat and the Forum is #GDHF2016.
