In 2012, ITU EUR organized the ITU Experts Group Meeting on m-Health: Towards Cure, Care and Prevention at ITU Headquarters on 25-26 September 2012. The meeting addressed the challenges and opportunities arising from the rapid growth of the mobile health industry at the policy, regulatory, technical and business level. In follow up to the meeting, a series of country case studies has been released and a roster of m-health experts created. In addition, a thematic study has been elaborated that is currently under review and will serve as a basis for the creation of a self-assessment toolkit for policy makers.
Furthermore, a Global eHealth Projects Repository was launched as a joint effort between ITU and the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2013. The repository will collect and make available information on validated, operational eHealth projects that demonstrate the effective use of ICTs for health. All administrations and stakeholders have been encouraged to submit eHealth projects that are evaluated and supported by governments. By contributing to this resource, administrations will raise the visibility of eHealth projects and enable an empowering sharing of experiences and good practices.
We are inviting you to submit eHealth projects that are evaluated and supported by government. Contribution to this resource will make a wealth of eHealth projects visible and enable mutual learning through the sharing of experiences and good practice.
