Last Thursday, eHealth Africa’s Germany-based office opened its doors to host “Good Data Saves Lives.” The meetup was part of a series of events hosted at our space in Berlin designed to bring together communities and individuals interested in global health and technology. Attendees from across the public and private sectors, including academic, global health, technology and international development networks, gathered to discuss the strategic use of data to improve health outcomes.
Speakers and audience members discussed a wide variety of topics related to data and health, including transformations in the both the doctor and patient approach to healthcare, data security, and environment-specific impacts.
We’d like to extend a special thanks to the speakers and audience members whose participation and collaboration were essential for the success of the event. Click through the slideshow to see how the meetup went!
