Barcelona’s Helthio is an event that brings together more than 10,000 citizens and healthcare system users, with more than 5,000 healthcare professionals and about 1,000 companies from diverse backgrounds. Here’s a throwback to our own and ZMD experience at Helthio 2017 :
We have created an original infographic – in English and French – to give an overview of our activities since the launch in 2013. Since then, we have embarked on innovative health projects both independently and in partnership with other eHealth enthusiasts from all over the world, our constant partners being Connecting Nurses, Connecting Midwives and UniversalDoctor ( more about WeObs ).
No, we didn’t make a mistake! The eHealth event of this year by the Finnish Society of Telemedicine and eHealth is indeed a cruise that goes between capital cities of Helsinki, Finland and Stockholm.
Our own Angelika Silva is representing the Zero Mothers Die App at the Conference: she became part of the WeObservatory following the 2017 Medetel event and is now in charge of further developing ZMD on behalf of the WeObs in collaboration with the National Institute of Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health Fernandes Figueira that intends to translate and adapt the Zero Mothers Die mobile application to the Portuguese language with the participation of institutional actors. More about her activities on our website.
You can follow the Conference on twitter under #eHealth2018.
More about the 23rd Finnish National Conference on Telemedicine and eHealth here.
For the first time, the WeObservatory and Zero Mothers Die are presented the eHealth Summer University, with a Key Note and a panel of experts on 5 July focusing on eHealth and Initiatives and a second presentation on Space data at the service of healthcare and well-being: an unimagined potential!
The day before, our partner Hilmi Quraishi, founder of ZMQ, and the project Mira Channel, was awarded at the Fondation Pierre Fabre. More details here.
With Mira Channel, women in India, Uganda and Afghanistan receive health information on their pregnancies (http://www.mirachannel.org/).
The whole event with more than 900 participants coming from Africa, Asia and Europe, offered a great potential of meeting with students, project founders and leaders of the industry.
Soon you can access all the presentations here :

We are back from the Diplomatic Council yearly Gala Dinner in Frankfurt excited, happy and carrying a nomination for the World Summit on the Information Society Prize for the Zero Mothers Die application and project.
The afternoon before the Gala dinner was dedicated to the DC Executive Club meeting during which global leaders of the Diplomatic Council made interesting lectures and presentations, to exchanged experience, gave new impulses to advance the Diplomatic Council. And, of course, recognised and nominated 5 projects for the World Summit on the Information Society Prize 2017.
The Gala was then ceremoniously opened by Secretary General Hang Nguyen and the founding President Buddhi Athauda followed by a speech of the new DC President H.E. Ambassador Dato‘ Zulkifli Adnan.
Thank you, DC, it was a great evening !
The 13th International Congress in Nursing Informatics recently took place this last June in Geneva. The topic this year was eHealth for All. Our partner Connecting Nurses and us, the Women Observatory for eHealth of the Millennia2025Foundation were presented by Nick Hardiker RN PhD FACMI, and Veronique Thouvenot MBA, Ph.D. A.Maths.
The presentation was focused on innovation in nursing care and illustrated by several projects posted by nurses on Care Challenge. These projects were both awarded by Connecting Nurses and later selected by the WeObservatory for a partnership. See for example Telehealth and Elederly by Michael Dino from Philippines:
Genevieve Rouleau – from the CHUM, Montreal University Hospital Center – presented the project TAVIE and it’s extension to women living with HIV and benefiting of the Virtual Nurse services, called TAVIE Women. This project has been recently awarded the Health Equality Award (Prix Egalité Thérèse Casgrain).
Another great initiative – Teo the Duckling – addressing eHealth for All is that of nurse Norma Grau from Barcelona, Spain that created a educational story and got it animated for young children living with diabetes at school. Video here.
The presentation concluded with the official launch the of UniversalNurses mobile app. As nurses work in diverse contexts all over the world, this app was created in order to facilitate multilingual communication between nurses and their patients. It is in 8 languages and is powered by UniversalDoctor and Tools SL, recently awarded at UN World Summit Award for Mobile Health App in Dubai.
