The new Global Health Matters podcast „Navigating digital health waves“ by TDR is out:
Host Garry Aslanyan is talking to Alvin Marcelo, Executive Director of Asia eHealth Information Network and Chief Medical Information Officer of St. Luke’s Medical Center in the Philippines and Karin Källander, Senior Health Adviser and Chief of the Digital Health & Information Systems Unit, UNICEF.
„Increasingly, digital technologies are transforming the delivery of health services and the functioning of health systems. Many of these technologies have also presented new ways of doing research and informed rapid decision-making. In this episode, we hear how UNICEF worked with Jamaica to rapidly deploy an electronic registry solution for the COVID-19 vaccine. We also learn that the Government of the Philippines created a huge opportunity for research by allowing open access to data from COVID-19 tests.“
