How appropriate healthcare technologies contribute in a public health emergency
It aims to bring together those who are motivated to improve the healthcare of those living in low resource settings and who enjoy sharing their projects and collaborating with others.
This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are modifying our plans and creating an online event. We are inviting abstracts for review and, if approved, authors will then be invited to record a short video presentation.
These presentations will be made available to an international audience on Friday 11th September 2020 along with the presentations of keynote speakers.
A live question and answer session will take place on Friday 18th September (time to be confirmed) so authors will need to be available on this date. We greatly look forward to welcoming you to our AHT2020 webinar
The technical talks will centre on
Innovative AHT devices and technologies, mhealth, ehealth, AI, medical laboratory technology, Hospital Technology Management (HTM), training, alternative energy sources, medical informatics, sustainability, appropriate equipment donations, appropriate patient transport to hospitals and health centres from remote areas, links between healthcare facilities in industrialised countries and low resource settings.
Call for abstracts
You are invited to submit your abstract, which should outline the scope and aim of your video presentation. Abstracts should be no longer than 500 words max.
Notes: The emphasis should, where possible, be on Innovation, Design and Engineering. Case studies from the field, including those which experienced serious challenges, or even failure, can be instructive in helping future projects.
Please email your abstract to Gemma Hadley (GHadley@theiet.org) by Friday 17 July 2020.
