Publication: Special Issue - Digital Technology and the Political Determinants of Health Inequities
The Global Policy Journal of the Durham University published the special issue Digital Technology and the Political Determinants of Health Inequities in August 2021. It is divided into an introduction to the topic, various research articles, policy insights and practitioner commentaries.
This special issue analyzes the global rise of digital health technologies and identifies how they impact, both positively and negatively, inequities. It brings together diverse perspectives from academics, policy makers, practitioners and activists from around the world. Their contributions engage with empirical data and practical experiences from Africa (Ghana, Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa, Sierra Leone), Asia (India), Europe (Germany, Norway, the European Union), and North America (the United States and Canada). Taken together and individually, they critically interrogate the political dimensions that link digital technologies and health equity.
