Digital Health Week is a global week of action that brings together the various stakeholders in the digital transformation of health systems, including governments, civil society, private sector, international institutions and the public.

The goal is to foster collaboration and bring global attention to the opportunities that digital health carries to achieve Universal Health Coverage.

Digital Health Week is a non-branded event, encouraging ownership and participation from organisations big and small around the world. Anyone can take action during Digital Health Week and seize this global moment as their own. Currently, Transform Health manages and organises Digital Health Week.

Participating in Digital Health Week

There are three key ways to get involved in Digital Health Week:

  • Host events – Organisations can organise events during Digital Health Week. These happen virtually and in cities around the world. Events happening throughout the week are listed on the Digital Health Week platform, inviting wider engagement from a global audience. Virtual events take place on the platform itself.
  • Make a commitment – Organisations make measurable commitments on how their upcoming work advances the digital transformation of health, as a way of public accountability towards the shared goal of Universal Health Coverage.
  • Tell your digital health story – During Digital Health Week, organisations and individuals draw public attention to digital health by producing and amplifying content about the role of digital health in achieving health for all, including articles, videos, podcasts and engaging on social media.

During Digital Health Week, people around the world tune into events, engage on social media, and share why digital health matters to them.
