Description

On Tuesday 13th March 2018

The Ministry of Health and the Health & Disability NGO Council are delighted to bring you the NGO Health & Disability Sector National Forum 2018 which explores the broad and exciting theme of:

Change is here ... Health and Technology

The Forum is a day of input, inspiration and connection that combines guest speakers, panels and discussions and plenty of time for networking with others.

Guest speakers

iMoko is an innovative, digitally enhanced healthcare programme developed to increase access to health services for children.

Dr Lance O'Sullivan is the Founder and Managing Director of Navilluso Health, makers of iMoko; and 2014 New Zealander of the Year.

Panel discussion

NGO Council members contribute to a panel, and facilitate roundtable discussions on the trials and triumphs of technology in the health workplace.

Networking

Opportunities for new and renewed connections; chance conversations that lead to mighty things; confirmation that you are not alone, change is indeed here!

The full programme will be available on the NGO Council website.

Any non-profit health or disability provider is welcome to attend - as are PHOs, DHBs, public servants and others who want to engage with health sector NGOs.
