About DigiHealthSouth 2020

This conference is designed to bring together researchers, designers, developers and policy makers to exchange and share their experiences and efforts around designing and implementing digital healthcare technologies for the global south. Delivering healthcare services to sensitive/marginalized populations in the global south faces many challenges. Deficiencies in how the healthcare system operates and barriers patients face to get access to proper treatments pose a threat to the quality of care for these populations. In a situation where the use of digital technologies could potentially alleviate some of these issues, implementations in global south contexts have historically shown that foreign solutions are ineffective due to local constraints. When it comes to the use of digital systems and tools, the global south population still faces access, literacy, cultural and economic barriers preventing digital technologies to have a wider acceptance and market penetration.

DigiHealthSouth offers a common ground for academia and industry to share their novel works addressing global south’s healthcare scenarios. When it comes to the adaptation of technical systems for healthcare, there is a need for a deep understanding of the user and the stakeholders so the risk of failure is lessened. Therefore, we are interested in exchanging knowledge in the design of localized solutions where the user, his context and the local market are part of the design process. Efforts around eHealth, Telemedicine or Human Computer Interaction for Development (HCI4D), are welcome to discuss how these solutions have tackled remote healthcare delivery, chronic diseases, prevention and tailored cost-effective solutions.

The conference is scheduled for two days sessions. The first one will be dedicated to workshop sessions. The second one, the morning will be opened by a keynote followed by paper presentations. Next, a keynote speaker will open the afternoon followed by paper presentations. Later, demo/posters will take place in late afternoon. The social/networking event will close the event.
