Health Services: Inclusive Delivery Options

  • 10:00 AM- 11:30 AM
  • Venue: Harmony, BICC
  • Chair: H.E. Zahid Maleque
  • Keynote Presenter: Md. Ashadul Islam

Session Concept:

A dramatic rise in chronic, non-communicable diseases (NCDs), particularly among the poor, aggravates these challenges. Estimates suggest that NCDs- which include diabetes, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, and cancers- now account for half of all deaths each year. The session will address what are the policy options could be leveraged or how new tools and technologies like e-Health, m-Health could be designed to tackle locally-relevant frameworks that integrate issues of health equity, governance, and accountability into program design, delivery, and evaluation.
