March 8, 2023 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

On March 8, we celebrate International Women’s Day remembering women’s rights are fundamental human rights, enshrined by the United Nations.

The 67th session of the Commission on the Status of Women will take place March 6-17, 2023. Representatives of Member States, UN entities, and ECOSOC-accredited non-governmental organisations (NGOs) from across the world are invited to contribute. The priority themes for this year are:

Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls

With due consideration to the opportunities and challenges digital tools, technological change and real-world data pose, HTAi, EFMI, IMIA, HL7 and the European Public Health Association (EUPHA’s SDG5 Gender Equality WG and EUPHAnxt) are convening an
interdisciplinary, interprofessional panel of women leaders from global public health, health care and medical informatics. This is an effort to learn more about cutting-edge projects that women leaders find exciting and relevant in the context of protecting and promoting
women’s rights, including in terms of exploring the potential of digital tools and of technological innovation. Insights will also be shared in terms of what the theme of this year means and how we can reach a call of action to promote jointly and separately organisations for global health and European public health priorities.

The virtual roundtable will take place on: March 8, 2023, from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm CET.
