IWEEE 2012 Granada: Commitment

This year slogan is "Commitment". It's time for individuals, public administrations and governments to adopt Free Software in public health, so we can all have access to good quality health care.

IWEEE is a success.The United Nations University IIGH is now an active member of the GNU Health community, and Paraguay started the migration to Free Software their health regional regions ( Project Ñamo Pyahu ) after attending IWEEE workshops.

This is our mission in GNU Solidario : Health and Education with Free Software
Some of the topics for discussion :

  • Free software in the health sector
  • e-Health in Public Health
  • Need for Free Standards in e-Health

IWEEE is not a pure technical conference. It will focus on the human factor and in raising awareness about the actual situation. We will discuss the tools that we can provide today to doctors and institutions to improve their habitants health and education.

The workshop promotes Free Software as one of the main pillars for a sustainable framework for providing e-health and education for the developing and least developed countries.

There will not be parallel conferences. All delegates will be able to assist and participate in the workshops that they find of interest. Communication among delegates is key.

IWEEE is a non-profit event organized by the GNU SOLIDARIO association.
