About this webinar

Technology often isn’t the limiting factor preventing digital health from flourishing in emerging markets. Often what patients and countries need are foundational elements to create an enabling environment and ecosystem for digital health to flourish. This includes regulation, internet access, data standards, and other foundational elements to strengthen digital health.

Microsoft, the Novartis Foundation, Rwanda’s Ministry of Health, and the Global Fund have been catalysts for convening the right partners – including each other –  to address these challenges. They each have been exemplars of how to cultivate groundbreaking digital health innovation through collaboration. They will share lessons learned and opportunities for the future to design and catalyze ecosystems for health access.

In this session, we will:

  • Discuss the barriers to enabling digital health in emerging markets: what does the enabling environment look like? What is a digital health ecosystem?
  • Address the role of partnership: how have they worked together to help promote health access via digital health? 
  • Explore what opportunities exist to set health systems and countries up for success in rolling out digital health
  • Unpack lessons from how Microsoft, the Novartis Foundation, Rwanda’s Ministry of Health, and the Global Fund approach multi-stakeholder partnerships
