In December two of the global health sector’s biggest events will take place: the Global Digital Health Forum & Global Health Supply Chain Virtual Summit.
Global Digital Health Forum
From 6 to 8 December 2021 the Global Digital Health Network will convene the Global Digital Health Forum. The forum brings together technology vendors, donors, researchers, government representatives and implementing organisations working in low- and middle-income countries to advance public health outcomes, share best practices and discuss emerging innovations.
This year’s forum will explore digital transformation. For the second time, the forum, which is the leading global industry networking event, will be held virtually and will have capacity for 3 000 attendees. In 2020 the first forum attracted over 2 000 attendees from more than110 countries.
The forum will feature lightning talks, panel presentations, individual sessions, technology demos, hands-on workshops and opportunities for networking with colleagues new and old from around the globe. Sessions will be in English, French, and Spanish and conference fees will be waived for participants from LMICs and students.
