#WFGM18 – From one, many: Improving access to health through women in health tech

Hosted by the Women & Access to Health Daring Circle
From artificial intelligence to data science, new technologies and innovations
promise to improve health research and healthcare. Some of these
technologies are poised to transform the health industry, especially in regions
where providing access to basic health services remains a major global
challenge. With women representing most of the world’s home healthcare
workers as well as unpaid caregivers, how do we ensure that today’s health
and biomedical research take sex and gender into consideration, as well as
other forms of diversity?
● How are women already leading in health innovation and technology,
and how can they further be encouraged to contribute to leadership in
this arena?
● How can we ensure that those who face the greatest barriers in
accessing health benefit from innovative leaps in health technology?
● How can the health, insurance and financial industries support more
women in health innovation? How can public policy further support
these efforts?
