Improving Access to Health : Learning From the Field
The 8th edition of the Geneva Health Forum will take place from 16-18 November 2020. The thematic of the year will explore innovative methods and tools in order to improve access to health.
Health systems are evolving in a rapidly changing world and are increasingly affected by technological progress. While health needs are changing, health systems are adapting at a slower pace due to limited resources. To improve the quality of these systems and identify new solutions, the Geneva Health Forum opens a platform of discussions. The event aims to rethink the organisation of health systems in order to facilitate the learning and adaptation of practices.
The upcoming edition of the forum will examine the potential of new communication tools, telemedicine, mass data management, electronic medical patient records, mobile applications, as well as the role of new health actors.
