Global Perspectives on Digital Health

10th to 14th January 2022, online.
14th to 18th February 2022, Amsterdam, Netherlands.

This two-week blended course offers an introduction and overview of digital health, including a strong emphasis on how in reality, digital health functions in various settings. Participants will discuss how digital health interventions can help push the triple aim of Universal Health Coverage and Sustainable Goal Development for more people at a lower cost in different settings in high-, low- and middle-income countries. 

The program discusses what kind of analysis should be done for developing digital health intervention, which stakeholders should be involved and cross-cutting issues to be considered when implementing DHI in low resources settings. 

The contents of the course are:

  • Defining digital health, principles and classification
  • Opportunities and limitations for digital health in LMICs
  • Surveying demand and feasibility of digital health solutions
  • Guidance on implementation of digital health interventions

The course is designed in an innovative model – similar to hackathons and data sprints, often the standard approach to develop technical skills. In the “sprint” methodology, while learning basic concepts, the participant can also acquire and develop applied skills developing projects to address real health problems. We encourage device and corpus literacy, allocating considerable time to course preparation, live tutorials, practical labs and interaction with partners, facilitators and keynote lectures.
