The Global South E-Health Observatory launches its call for projects 2024

From November 3 to December 15, 2023, project managers using information and communication technologies to improve access to care and quality medicines in African and Asian countries already implemented in the field (at least at the pilot stage) are invited to submit their applications by referencing or updating their project on the dedicated website page.

After reviewing the eligible applications, the Observatory’s group of experts will subsequently select the most relevant projects, which will be awarded an Observatory prize and benefit from one year’s financial and technical support. Since its creation, 41 winners have received support.

The prizes will be awarded at the Observatory’s 8th annual conference, to be held at the end of 2024 at the Fondation Pierre Fabre headquarters in Lavaur.
