Joan Dzenowagis

Joan Dzenowagis is a Senior Scientist and international health policy specialist at the World Health Organization, with experience in information and communication technology (ICT) and public health, policy and strategy development.

A fundamental change in the years since the MDGs were agreed upon is the appreciation of the role that ICT can play in meeting health targets. It was not so long ago that health decision makers were questioning the utility of adopting ICT in health services and systems -- that is, "e-Health" -- particularly in developing countries.
