Global Health Advocacy seminar: “Apps, maps and cyber chats: how technology can be harnessed for global health”

Global Health Technology“Apps, maps and cyber chats: how technology can be harnessed for global health”

Venue:  Royal College of Physicians, Regents Park, London, NW1 4LE

Date:  June 19th 2014, 6:30pm – 8pm followed by a drinks reception

This is the second in this year’s Global Health Advocacy seminar series held by the RCP and the Alma Mata Global Health Network.  How can technological innovations be employed in low-resource settings to address global health issues? How can these innovations maximise professionals’ productivity, empower patient and improve quality and access to healthcare? Are these tools diverting resources from ensuring sustainable health systems and can they really hold value for money in global health settings? The discussion will consider how the developed world can learn from innovations taking place elsewhere and incorporate them into the existing health systems.  Join us for a lively and interactive debate.
Chair:

Dr. Caroline Free, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

Speakers:

Mr Chris Phillips, MapAction

Dr. Tariq Sadiq, St. George’s University/eST12 Consortium

Dr Susie Whitwell, Medicine Africa

Mr Alan Hardiman, T-Systems.
