There is no universal experience of growing up in a digital world. So, how do we distinguish between the different lived experiences of digital transformations in health as experienced by young people around the world?
Digital health technologies are helping to improve young people’s access to quality healthcare from conception to early adulthood. As such, the health, wellbeing, and views of young people should be a primary consideration when developing digital health tools and policies.
The Commission proposes that the digital health readiness of countries should be measured along ten enablers which encourage all actors in a digitally-enabled health ecosystem to align their digital transformation efforts with the Sustainable Development agenda and goal of UHC.
The Commission has created six digital childhood profiles to illustrate the diversity of young people’s lived experiences of growing up in a digital world.
This database contains examples of governance actions and proposals by governments, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, the private sector, and other key actors. It is organised based on themes relevant to the Commission’s Report.
Investing in the SDGs to address the social, commercial and environmental determinants of health; bridging the digital and health divide; ensuring health and digital rights; enfranchising and including every citizen; involvement of citizens and communities.
Digital cooperation, digital taxes and digital governance; regulating powerful players and adopting mission-oriented innovation policies.
Defining health data and principles for its use; building data institutions for data solidarity in health.
