Women For Digital Health
The initiative “Women for Digital Health” will provide an ecosystem for encouraging women in leadership positions for Digital Health. The shift from manager to senior manager is where women in healthcare experience the biggest decline. The gender distribution of the healthcare workforce shows a definite numerical advantage for men in the physicians and healthcare workforce, whilst women exceed men in the category of nurses. Even though there are more women than men enrolling in the healthcare industry as students, gender parity is still not reflected in leadership positions in healthcare.
Fewer female executives mean fewer female role models for women just beginning their careers. Hence, strong role models and a supportive work environment are crucial to promoting female engagement. We need to address this from an ecosystem perspective, hence this initiative, ‘Women for Digital Health’, which will focus on providing an ecosystem for encouraging women in leadership positions. Digital Health Associates and its various SBUs will focus and invest in encouraging and supporting women to join Digital Health and help move upwards in the hierarchy to take up leadership roles in Digital Health. Given that digital health will become the nervous system of healthcare delivery, women leaders will lead in shaping the future of healthcare.
“Time will not solve the leadership gender gap, but our efforts and actions can.”

Just On You
Organizations and governments spend billions of dollars promoting healthy habits and spreading awareness through public health campaigns. Yet, these campaigns have not yielded the desired results. Something is missing!
The research studies conducted by Health Parliament reveal the lack of the last mile connect for the campaigns – Disconnect between Right information and Right Action. Over the past two years, we have tried to understand this challenge and created a path-breaking campaign to bridge this divide. Hence the campaign JOY- Just on You. With JOY, we hope to make one person from each household a champion for healthy habits and timely decisions for health; the individual could be a son, daughter, sister, mom, or someone who will nudge the family for healthier choices – The ‘Joy’ of the family.
Healthcare Communication Week
Medical science has advanced, and for most diseases, we either know how to cure or manage them. Overall, the focus is on providing the treatment. However, we have still not addressed the increasing burden of diseases. More funding or more healthcare coverage has not resulted in better health outcomes because the world has yet to focus on the ‘basics’ of health.
‘Health Communication’ remains one of the biggest challenges across communities and countries. To address this challenge, Health Parliament proposes the ‘Healthcare Communication Week’ to bring the focus back to basics. We have a doctor’s day, nurses’ day, and several days focusing on diseases, etc. (https://www.who.int/campaigns), but healthcare communication has no day dedicated to it, and without addressing the communication (interaction between the care seeker and care provider), we cannot deliver appropriate healthcare interventions. Health Parliament invites global stakeholders to celebrate World Healthcare Communication Week in the 1 st week of April, concluding with World Health Day (7 th April). We should use this opportunity to focus on all aspects of healthcare-related communication and conduct programs and campaigns to address the fundamental issue of ‘interaction’ and ‘information’ for communicating about Health care.
We hope this global campaign will save millions of lives every year.
Public Task Force For Accountable Healthcare
Health Parliament launched the Public Task Force for Accountable Healthcare on the 2nd anniversary of COVID. We believe healthcare should not be supplier-driven but demand- driven, based on care seekers’ needs. The initiative intends to make healthcare accessible, affordable, accountable and outcome-driven.
