On April 23d the WeObservatory hosted its own session during the Medetel conference : Empowering Women in eHealth and Telemedicine through Education.
Dr. Véronique Thouvenot started by presenting WeObservatory’s activities and more specifically the work resulting in a list of Online Courses. As well as the initiatives to support health of pregnant women in emerging countries : Zero Mothers Die together with the Clean Birth Kits (of the WeObservatory’s Save our Mothers project).
Amongst other speakers came to present Eleonora Muntañola Thornberg of CASA and Fiona Marlow of CloudBabies, leaders of two new projets that the WeObservatory selected for a one-year partnership. We also heard from Lenka Lhotska on Mentoring and Adesola Odole on Telehealth in Nigeria.
