The GDD Summit is a virtual meeting place for innovators to share experiences on how digital technology and the transformative power of data inform decisions and impact lives around the world.
The GDD Summit started as an idea to gather adjoining sectors from health and development to meet and learn from each other, explore successes and failures, identify relevant trends, and enhance collaboration opportunities across different sectors, actors, and geographical borders. The event was established to enable sharing and relationship building between organizations, institutions, and donors on a global level in order to better serve, connect with, and engage with all actors, regardless of geography.
Join this community to learn or help others understand how we can tackle challenges in the public health and international humanitarian and development sectors with technology-enabled solutions.
Our mission is to provide a meeting place for our global community to connect, create synergies and learn from each other. We want to have a space for people to come together and share their stories and their expertise in digital health and the humanitarian and development sector.
Our vision is to create a community that strives to achieve common goals by using technology-enabled solutions and harnessing the transformative power of data to inform decision making and improve lives around the world.
