Statement to the press by Dr. Hans Henri P. Kluge, WHO Regional Director for Europe – Digital Health is about Empowering People
A statement to the press by Dr. Hans Henri P. Kluge, WHO Regional Director for Europe that wishes to convey three messages.
First, go digital but go wisely. Digital helps health systems cope with delivery of essential health care, particularly during emergencies. Secondly, it’s all about trust. Digital tools rely on public trust. Thirdly, we cannot afford to have people than cannot afford digital health. We cannot afford a digital divide on top of the social and economic divide.
“Digital health is about empowering people to make healthy life style decisions to create European culture of health”.
