E4GDH & HBS webinar: Combating digital health inequality in the time of coronavirus

In the time of coronavirus, as never before, being online is central to all our lives. As we lock down and self isolate, this is how we can keep in touch with family and friends, access reliable health information, manage our own health without depending on overstretched health services, carry on working, access financial support, pursue leisure interests to keep us occupied.

In an upcoming E4GDH and HBS joint webinar (Thursday 23rd April 2020, 1500 -1600 BST (GMT+1)), Bob Gann will describe how community organisations including libraries have worked to support people who might otherwise be excluded, by providing access to technology and building digital skills, confidence and digital health literacy. The webinar will conclude with discussion of action being taken now, during the global health crisis, to ensure those who most need information and support are not left behind in the digital age.  

We are pleased to announce that this is a joint webinar with IFLA Evidence for Global and Disaster Health (E4GDH) Special Interest Group.
