Description

Intelligent connectivity and mobile technology are key enablers for accessing a range of life-enhancing services such as mobile health - 1 billion subscribers used mobile to access health services in 2017 alone. Mobile phones are being used to provide a range of essential healthcare services ranging from humanitarian assistance during epidemics and natural disasters to providing effective and affordable solutions to addressing healthcare needs in developing markets. There are a number of start-ups and partnerships with operators, that point to scalable, sustainable and commercially viable use cases for digital health and wellbeing. This session will showcase some of the projects that are bettering people’s lives and working towards achieving the UN’s sustainable development goals, including universal access to good health.
