Abstract

The equitable provision of healthcare is central to achieving economic, social and human development in any society. It is important that as innovations, especially technological innovations in care delivery develop that we do not create unintended consequences that restrict access to care because of a digital divide. The concept of heath equity arises from the belief that differences in social and economic backgrounds of people lead to differences in their ability to access health care. This mini-track features papers that offer contributions to what we know about innovations in the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for Health Equity.
