AHBS Webinar Series Partnerships for COVID19 in Africa – Digital health

17th July 2020 @ 4:00 pm 6:00 pm

This is the first session of the AHBS webinar series, themed “Partnerships for COVID-19”. Brian O’Connor will speak during this session.

Digital health and technology are key to improve the quality and equity of healthcare systems in Africa. Since the turn of the century, the continent has witnessed a rising number of private investments in digital health and innovation with a huge potential for scaling up to deliver even greater impact. The current pandemic underscores the important role that technology can play in curbing the spread of the disease, and both the public and private sector are embracing the need for innovative partnerships to improve healthcare by leveraging digital technologies. 

During this webinar panelists will speak about their work, how they are supporting the fight against COVID-19, their lessons learnt, and the opportunities envisaged during and beyond the pandemic. The panel will consist of 3-4 digital health organizations and one discussant.

The attendees will learn about during this session: 

» Demand and expectations from patients and the public
» Fostering an enabling regulatory landscape
» Scaling up appropriate technologies across the continent
