Re-imagining Data Governance in the context of Digital Health

8 Mar 2023, 12:30h - 14:00h


While digital technology has the potential to revolutionise healthcare, it can also exacerbate gender inequalities, deepen marginalisation, and enable human rights violations. In a world where our physical and digital identities are increasingly intertwined, bodily autonomy must include control over personal data – however, this remains elusive to women, girls and those identifying as other genders, especially in LMICs.

This 90-minute webinar, organised by the United Nations University International Institute for Global Health, will focus on data governance and sexual and reproductive health (SRH) in the context of a rapidly evolving digital health industry, and privacy and data protection legislation that is struggling to keep up.
