Project Group

Global Health Informatics (GHI)

Webinar 2024-03-15 with Special Input from WHO

Dear GMDS Member,

as you might have read already in the last GMDS Newsletter, the new GMDS project group “Global Health Informatics (GHI)” was established last year. After a very encouraging kick-off meeting at last year’s GMDS conference in Heilbronn, we now start engaging into more regular activities. As part of our activities we want to offer quarterly group meetings, alternating between open discussion sessions and focused webinars. We are extremely proud to welcome Dr. Alain Labrique from the World Health Organisation (WHO) as our first speaker. Dr. Labrique is the director of the Department of Digital Health & Innovation at WHO and will elaborate on the recent WHO achievements in the field of Digital Health.

We’d love to invite you to this session, even if you are not planning to be a member of the GHI project group, yet. Feel also free to forward this invitation to interested colleagues from outside GMDS.

Kind regards,
Your GHI speakers
