This year's Global Digital Health Forum will take place online, from December 7-9, 2020. The Forum will bring together government stakeholders, digital health technologists, researchers, donors, implementers and field experts to engage on the theme, Digital Health - Making it Work for Everyone. Leveraging the opportunity to make the Forum itself more accessible, the conference will host sessions in English, French, and Spanish. To attend, register here.
Given the current global COVID-19 pandemic, discussions about how to make health and disease data more accessible will be particularly relevant. USAID Advancing Nutrition organized a panel discussion on the topic of digital health for nutrition services that will take place on Monday, December 7th from 12:00 – 1:15PM EST. Panelists include Neelima Dhingra from Dimagi, Allyson Nelson from D-tree International, Sandrine Busière from Terre des hommes, and Leona Rosenblum from John Snow Inc., along with USAID’s Jeniece Alvey, serving as moderator. They will discuss a recent report that provides a comprehensive compilation of digital tools for service providers, developed with the goal of providing an overview of what tools have been used to strengthen the delivery of nutrition services and identifying which gaps USAID Advancing Nutrition can address to help improve the coverage and quality of nutrition services using digital tools.
