Workshop 9: How could digital health platforms improve health in low resource settings?
Example one: Open Data Workshop
Facilitator: Max Petzold, Gothenburg University
Description: Access to research data is fundamental in all research. Gathering, documenting and making already collected research data available is improving the possibilities to do good research and is especially important in low resource settings. This workshop will discuss and identify the possibilities to increase the data sharing within global health research given the research priorities and ethics. The applicability of the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable, see https://www.force11.org/group/fairgroup/fairprinciples ) principles will be assessed.
Example two: Global Mental Health Workshop
Facilitators: Helena Frielingsdorf Lundqvist, Linköping University, and Anna-Clara Hollander, Karolinska Institute
Description: The aim of this workshop is to showcase research on global mental health and provide a platform for a network as well as future collaborations. We will discuss different strategies of translating our research findings into policy changes, and summarize the outcome of the discussions into an action plan.
If you are already involved in research on global mental health: please let us know if you are willing to give a 5-10-minute mini-presentation about your research. Your participation is greatly appreciated! If you are interested in knowing more about global mental health research: this is an opportunity to find out what is going on in the field, network and participate in interesting discussions!
