25 June 2012: GeHAP Annual Meeting

Professor Kwankam at GeHAPS

GeHCs CEO, Prof. S. Yunkap Kwankam in his capacity as Executive Director of the International Society for Telemedicine and eHealth (ISfTeH), attended the Annual meeting of the Global eHealth Ambassadors Program (GeHAP). The GeHAP is an initiative of the ISfTeH, with seed funding from the Rockefeller Foundation. Advocacy plays a particularly important role within the broad framework of using ICT to strengthen health systems, especially in the Global South. Chaired by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the eHealth Ambassadors are globally recognized personalities who serve as high-level advocates for eHealth. They articulate consistent, ethical and evidence-based policy and advocacy positions with regard to the use of ICT in health; promote the development of integrated eHealth systems in countries; and advocate a higher profile for eHealth in health development activities, country budgets, bi-, and multi-lateral partnerships, and aid and development programs.This program which was the brain child of Prof. Kwankam when he was head of eHealth at the World Health Organization in Geneva, has a number of iconic figures as Ambassadors.
