Tech & Health
Technology has the potential to transform the healthcare sector globally. Yet many questions remain about how it will be transformed, who stands to benefit and who will suffer the consequences. HGHI’s Tech & Health Program aims to answer these questions through leveraging novel data sources, empowering the next generation of AI practitioners to build evidence-based solutions and facilitating meaningful collaborations across disciplines and sectors.
The Harvard Global Health Institute (HGHI) is uniquely positioned to bring together leading scholars across diverse disciplines to focus on the promise, potential and challenges that automated technologies can have in transforming healthcare delivery in low and middle-income countries. This newest HGHI initiative will build collaborations with key stakeholders across the globe, engage with local communities who are directly impacted by these technologies and share best practices to prepare the world for the future of healthcare delivery.
