ePractice event: eHealth & Equity in the Global Health Communities

Venue: Brussels, Belgium
Organised by European Dynamics, S.A
15/12/2011

The event ‘eHealth and Equity in the Global Health Communities’ is an initiative of the eHealth Unit, DG INFSO, European Commission and will take place in Brussels, on  15 December at European Commission premises.

The potential of eHealth to help strengthen health systems and to improve the safety, quality and efficiency of care was recognized by the World Health Assembly in its resolution on eHealth in 2005. In addition, eHealth should improve health equity as a consequence of the ease of access to information and health services.

The workshop will seek answers to questions such as:

  • What types of disparities does this ease of access minimize or exacerbate?
  • How are health systems and their governance influenced by these eHealth solutions, policies and practices?
  • What evidence is there to strengthen activities and programmes that support local, regional, national and global health communities?


We particularly seek experiences and lessons learnt in low-resource settings including contributors from developing countries.
