Digital health

    Overview

    The use and scale up of digital health solutions can revolutionize how people worldwide achieve higher standards of health, and access services to promote and protect their health and well-being.

    Digital health provides opportunities to accelerate our progress in attaining health and well-being related Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs), especially SDG 3, and achieving our triple billion targets for 2023 as articulated in its Thirteenth General Programme of Work (GPW13).

    • Policymakers –  Support decision-makers at the local, regional and national level to ensure the sustainable, safe and ethical use of technology.
    • Practitioners – Facilitate the capacity for practitioners to use digital technologies to deliver healthcare benefits effectively.
    • Population – Improve the health and well-being of people, with the interventions of digital health. 

    WHO will focus on enabling countries to plan, adopt, and benefit from seamless and secure technologies that provide effective clinical and public health solutions to accelerate the achievement of the health and well-being related SDGs. This means leaving no one behind – children or adults, rural or urban, with digital solutions to improve their health and well-being.
