Opening Health? Exploring Civic Participation and Open Data in the Health Sector.


Throughout the world, citizens increasingly expect more from their governments in terms of the delivery of public health services. Indeed, access to quality healthcare makes a significant difference in quality of life. As the health sector is complex and often characterized by malpractice, inefficiencies, corruption, low quality, and poor access the use of new technologies and data has the potential to improve service delivery.  In this roundtable we discuss different initiatives that pilot such tools to solve health challenges. In particular, we seek to explore how citizen participation and open data can positively influence health policy making. We want your feedback, ideas, and challenges!


Each panelist will give a short presentation about their work. The facilitator will encourage the audience to ask questions. Participants will then be asked to join a roundtable discussion to contribute with their feedback, ideas and challenges.
