Join the World Health Summit 2022, the first World Health Summit (WHS) together with the World Health Organization (WHO), taking place from October 16th to October 18th, 2022 at the Hotel Berlin Central District in Berlin, Germany. There is also a virtual component for those who are unable to join in person.
WHS 2022 creates synergies and combines forces for global health development by engaging all relevant global health leaders and stakeholders from all sectors in all regions of the world.
This year’s World Health Summit focuses on “Making the Choice for Health” by reflecting on the most pressing topics, including a session on How to Achieve a Global Health Data Space, in the format of a panel discussion.
Breaking the data silos is essential to reshape the future of healthcare and crisis preparedness. With the growing opportunities of digital health and artificial intelligence (AI), we are, more than ever before, in the pole position for a Global Health Data Space that could help to treat and govern data for health as a global public good. However, across and within countries there is a stark divide in the capacity to effectively work with data. The 2021 I-DAIR Global Research Map reveals, the divide between data use leaders based in a small number of countries and the rest of the world is growing. Additionally, biases in data relating to gender, race, and age limit the universal benefit and the trust in data use.
Only when used equitably and ethically, the work with data can offer an unprecedented possibility to improve global health and well-being and achieve UHC 2030. Impact at the global level will thereby only be possible with shapers and decision makers from different disciplines including from countries of relatively lower income and/or with smaller populations. With this session we wish to spark stakeholder engagement for a transparent data system that protects citizens’ data and facilitates their use for healthcare and research.
