EuroHealthNet welcomes the European Commission’s initiative to set up a strategic outlook to digital skills development and promote a high quality, inclusive, coherent and coordinated approach to the provision of digital skills for all. The digital transformation of our societies is happening at a fast pace, whilst being further accelerated by the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. To truly take advantage of the benefits of digital technologies, notably in the health sector, it is crucial that the digitisation process goes hand in hand with programmes that boost people’s digital literacy skills. This includes dedicating specific attention to the most vulnerables as well as accompanying the implementation of the new outlook with disaggregated data and more ambitious goals addressing different population groups (e.g.: per age, socioeconomic status, education levels, health and social workforce, etc.).
