HIMSS and Health 2.0 European Conference Helsinki, Finland 7-9 September 2020
In order to build a fair and inclusive health systems, equality and diversity need to be a priority at all stages: fundamental research, data collection and management, app and algorithm development… We often preach the importance of co-design and precision health, but how well women are truly represented in these different fields?
It's estimated that only 18% of hospital CEOs, 10% of open-source programmers and 21% of health investors are women. Are we slowly developing gender-biased health systems, and technologies?
This Health 2.0 session is putting women front and center, showcasing innovative technologies developed by and for women, addressing women’s health in a more holistic way, going beyond just period tracking, and addressing key challenges to create a fair and inclusive system.
