You are cordially invited to the 5th Global Forum on Health Promotion
organised by the Alliance for Health Promotion in collaboration with the ITU, WHO and the Global Health Programme at the Graduate Institute, Geneva

Closing the Gap in Health Equity through Technology
Monday, 16 November 2015 | 09:00 - 17:00

Maison de la paix, the Graduate Institute, Geneva

The Global Forum on Health Promotion will explore in its 2015 edition how current and emerging technologies can impact on promoting health and well-being of people from all parts of the world, in particular the marginalized and vulnerable. Electronic communication and information technology not only covers technical development but also reflects a state of mind, a way of thinking, and an attitude which closely connects health promotion to behavioral change. Mobile health offers a way to empower citizens to better control their own health while reducing health care costs. Currently more people have access to mobile devices than to clean water, electricity or toothbrushes.

Innovative technologies have enormous potential to improve human well-being and to address health equity. This is particularly relevant in the area of environmental health where major technological advancements are contributing to decreased exposure to environmental risks. Successful examples of technological implementation illustrate the core values of equity. Technological progress, however, does not always guarantee equitable health outcomes.
