Global Digital Health

The World Health Organisation led ambition is for all people to have access to quality health services they need, when and where they need them. In the UK and globally, governments and healthcare providers see digital innovation as a major contributor to improving access to quality health care. In our research we consider the impact of the move to digital on access to quality healthcare in low resource settings.

We evaluate the implementation of digital innovation for health. Our recent work has been on remote consulting.

We systematically review evidence of the potential for digital innovations to improve access to quality healthcare for resource-poor populations, consider whether new inequalities may result, and how these can be mitigated.

We work with colleagues in low- and middle-income countries, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa on funded research. Through our teaching we engage our medical, undergraduate and post-graduate students in critical review and reflection on digital health.
