Combating digital health inequality in the time of coronavirus (29) Recording available

1 May, 2020

Dear HIFA colleagues,

Webinar: Combating digital health inequality in the time of coronavirus

Bob Gann described how community organisations, including libraries, have worked to support people who might otherwise be excluded. He gave examples of actions being taken now, during the global health crisis, to ensure those who most need information and support are not left behind in the digital age.

Thank you to HIFA colleagues for contributing to discussions in the lead up to this webinar, and to those who joined us on the day. It was fantastic to have more than 200 people and 41 countries represented.

I am pleased to announce that the recording is now available, along with Bob’s slides and a list of featured resources.

With best wishes

Emma Farrow
