Hear from Good Things Foundation (UK and Australia) in a discussion on digital inclusion supporting better health.
CHF’s Consumer Commission’s 2020 report Making Health Better Together highlights the considerable benefits of digital health but drew attention to barriers such as poor internet, low digital health literacy and access to devices and data. The Commission recommended a national plan to guarantee digital access and argued that digital inclusion is needed to avoid widening health inequities.
Digital inclusion means ensuring people can use the internet and technology to improve their daily lives. Never has it been more important that everyone has the skills and technology to safely access reliable and trustworthy health information, resources and services.
In this webinar, we hear from digital inclusion specialists - Good Things Foundation - talking about the critical role of digital inclusion in ensuring better health and wellbeing. We'll hear about the groups that are at greatest risk of exclusion in Australia, and of broadening health inequities, and about the programs in Australia and the UK that work to close the digital divide.
