New Tech Working for Health Equity

Health technologies such as telemedicine, mobile health devices, AI and other digital health tools have the potential to reduce health inequities by increasing access to healthcare for underserved populations and improving the delivery of care. These technologies can also facilitate data collection and analysis, enabling a more targeted and effective approach to addressing health disparities.

However, it is important to ensure that these technologies are designed and implemented in a way that is inclusive and equitable, and that addresses the specific needs and challenges faced by marginalized communities.
