During the World Health Summit, held online and in Berlin from 24 to 26 October, a report was launched concerning digital health governance structures.
In the session “Launch of the Report - The Lancet & Financial Times Commission: Governing Health Futures 2030: Growing up in a Digital World”, panelists outlined the recommendations for digital health governance published by the Lancet and Financial Times after two years of multistakeholder research and consultation. The recommendations include, amongst others, the need for increased recognition of how the digitalised environment is a determinant of health and to invest in digital health system enablers.
In the panel discussion “Unlocking Digital and AI Technologies for Health”, speakers revolved around the topic of digital transformation in the health sector as essential to drive global progress towards universal health coverage.
