The WeObservatory has selected yet once again new projects to work with: on our new map see the blue bubbles, new mobile apps, eLearning modules in Spanish and French and the Special issue on Women in eHealth 2017 of the Journal of the International Society for Telemedicine and eHealth (JISfTeH),
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.

The WeObservatory offers four different activities: (a) a selection of innovative projects, (b) eApplications, (c) a selection of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), and (d) a Library. The innovative projects are selected from among those posted by participating nurses to Care Challenge—the ideas-sharing website of the nursing community worldwide, created by Connecting Nurses Committee improve patient support through the use of telemedicine and eHealth services. The inclusion of these projects in the WeObservatory aims to expand their visibility and aid their founders in establishing connections with Millennia2015 communities in diverse regions and countries. Starting in 2012, the WeObservatory Steering has selected five Care Challenge projects per year, seeking to improve patient support through the use of telemedicine and eHealth services. The inclusion of these projects in the WeObservatory aims to expand their visibility and aid their founders in establishing connections with Millennia2015 communities in diverse regions and countries.
