Seeking collaborators for a proposal for the United Nations World Data Forum in Hangzhou, China April 24th to April 27th 2023 (2) Update

22 June, 2022

[ ]

Following discussions on the HIFA network, a small group of interested HIFA members, from Cameroon, Ghana, India, Federated states of Russia and the UK have made a proposal to the April 24 to April 27th 2023 United Nations World Data Forum (Held in Hangzhou, China).

The proposal is firstly for the UNWDF to support patient access to and patient auditing of their data and data trail and, secondly, a call for the UN to support an emergent global standard for the processing of digital personal health data.

Only 70 proposals will be successful for delivery at the UNWDF in Hangzhou, China. Fingers crossed.
