EuroHealthNet responded to the WHO Global Strategy on Digital Health 2020-2024.  Overall, it is a good overview of strategic approaches to digital health in-development. It offers an accurate description of both the needs and challenges of adopting digital technologies to improve health from inception to operation. In the context of rapidly-changing environments for health systems and delivery of care, this strategy can serve as a means of promoting equitable, affordable, and universal access to health, as well as fairer opportunities and wellbeing outcomes for all.

While EuroHealthNet supports such strategic approaches and forward-thinking, we believe that important equity-related issues should be addressed and further strengthened in the final Global Strategy on Digital Health 2020-2024. In our response. we set out how the final strategy can do so.
