(REF 19049) Breaking Down Barriers to International Cooperation on Health Data (In-Person)

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

This interactive session will explore the following questions:
  • What barriers exist to international cooperation on health data? How can we address technical, policy, legal, economic, and operational barriers to collaboration. 
  • How can we integrate regulatory conversations early in the process when developing international research collaborations on health data?
  • How can tools, like synthetic data and other PETs, help enable this?
  • How has the conversation evolved during the pandemic?
  • Where can AI for health make progress on relevant UN SDGs?
    • Good Health & Well-Being
    • Reduced Inequalities
    • Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure
Following a panel discussion sharing experiences and case studies, participants will bring their own expertise to develop ideas for concrete recommendations, collaborations and next steps.
