Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare, J P Nadda, inaugurated the ‘4th Global Digital Health Partnership Summit in New Delhi.
The global intergovernmental meeting on digital health, hosted by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Global Digital Health Partnership (GDHP).
The summit provides an opportunity to support governments and health system reformers in improving the health and well-being of their citizens through digital technologies.
The Global Digital Health Partnership (GDHP) is a collaboration of governments and territories, government agencies and the World Health Organization aimed at supporting the effective implementation of digital health services.
The GDHP was established in February 2018 to provide an international platform for global collaboration and sharing of evidence to guide the delivery of better digital health services within participant countries.
The GDHP also provides an opportunity for transformational engagement between its participants, who are striving to learn and share best practice and policy that can support their digital health systems.
The secretariat services for the GDHP are provided by Australian Digital Health Agency for the initial 18 months.
