The Case For Digital Health: Accelerating Progress To Achieve UHC

Governments have committed to achieve UHC by 2030 as part of SDG3. While many countries have made progress, around half the world’s population still lack access to the health services they need, undermining their right to health. Digital health has the potential to help accelerate progress towards achieving health for all and can also put people at the centre of the health system. However, due to the digital divide, this potential is not being fully harnessed. Transform Health, Fondation Botnar, the Civil Society Engagement Mechanism for UHC2030 and Medicus Mundi Switzerland are hosting a hybrid event to build political momentum for action and investment in digitally enabled primary healthcare to close the digital health equity gap and accelerate progress to achieve UHC. The event will bring together government representatives, international organisations, civil society, youth representatives, and industry to hear diverse stakeholder perspectives and commitments to make progress on this agenda. The event will also feature the launch of a new report by Transform Health, “The case for digital health: Accelerating progress to achieve UHC”
