Connecting for Health: Global Vision, Local Insight
Report for the World Summit on the Information Society
Information and communication technologies are changing health care delivery and are at the core of effective, responsive health systems. This report, produced by WHO and the European Commission for the World Summit on the Information Society, highlights the opportunities for eHealth in countries as well as the need for a global, long-term and collaborative approach so that all citizens may benefit.
The Country Profiles compilation brings together statistics from United Nations agencies measuring demographics, health and information and communication technologies(ICT), providing a profile of each WHO Member State's health and ICT diffusion and a reference for policy and research.
