What role can telehealth play in the development of health systems? How can it be regulated by law? These are the questions addressed by the virtual Africa Telehealth Conference, which will take place from June 8th to 9th, 2021. Representatives from the fields of politics, health and business will discuss the establishment of sustainable strategies and partnerships in telehealth. The main emphasis of the pan-African forum is on the practical application and regulation of telehealth, for example through the development of infrastructure and financing options. One focus is on the telehealth developments of Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda and Botswana.
The GIZ funding programme Hospital Partnerships has supported various projects on the topic of eHealth.
