Desmond Tutu on the global challenge of eHealth


The highlight of this week’s HealtheNation conference was not the Health Minister or any of the other speakers, but a modest pre-recorded video presentation by Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu.

As a Global eHealth ambassador for the International Society for Telemedicine and eHealth he spoke with credibility and a passion for realigning the imbalance in health care delivery using eHealth. Nothing particularly world shattering or new, but even I could put aside my natural scepticism and feel a little inspired – I liked that & thought I’d share it 🙂

Apologies for my hand-held phone recording…
