Global Education & Technology Health Summit
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that the world faces a global shortage of almost 4.3 million doctors, midwives, nurses, and other healthcare professionals, as well as a shortage of faculty that can provide high-quality training and mentorship for current training programmes . However, the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) can help to overcome those challenges.
The Summit aims to bring together stakeholders from different sectors, levels and geographies, including Governments, NGOs, Education and the digital and IT sectors to generate fresh knowledge, partnerships and ideas that can address the global health worker shortage, through the use of digital media and ICTs.
This year’s conference has evolved into a collaboration between iHeed and the Johns Hopkins Center for Clinical Global Health Education (CCGHE), building on from two very successful events which were held in 2013; GETHealth Summit and mHealthEd.
