This Expert Panel aimed to highlight health literacy programs and implementation strategies in a range of settings.
This Project Spotlight provided an overview of the Australian experience with the viewpoint of what other countries and organizations implementing eHealth interoperability could learn.
A discussion was started by a member who explained how difficult it was to find a job in Global Health (GH) and health IT despite having an advanced degree, and many members corroborated the reality that finding a job was difficult. The community responded with suggestions on both things to do as well as places to look for positions if you are starting off your career in international development.
Panelists and members addressed the necessary elements of partnerships between NGOs and Ministries of Health; the challenges of administering joint programs; ways NGOs can build local human resource capacity; partnering with the public sector to meet infrastructure needs; and examples of successful partnerships.
Members offered input on various labratory challenges including shortages of skilled staff, poor funding, a failure to meet safety standards and thus fail accreditation, and weak supply chain management systems.

During this month-long event, members discussed and shared ideas for different ways that technologies, care delivery processes, organizational models, incentives, or policies could, if scaled, bring about societal-level change, reduce costs, and improve quality.
