WEBINAR:

Building Digital Solutions for Health in Guatemala

Join USAID’s Health and Education Policy Plus (HEP+)  for a webinar on information sharing through digital platforms on Tuesday, July 27, 2021.

This webinar will be held in Spanish, with live English interpretation.

English:

In the last two decades, we have witnessed the increasing complexity of and demands to our health and education systems. Information and technology systems serve as innovative and accessible tools, effective in reaching people at the “last mile,” – those information consumers who live and work in remote areas and experience barriers to accessing information on healthcare and education services. The need for digital tools and the information they provide has only increased in the era of COVID-19, with restrictions on travel and group gatherings.

It is in this context that USAID’s Health and Education Policy Plus (HEP +) project partners with Guatemalan stakeholders like the Ministry of Health and Social Assistance (MSPAS) and Office of Human Rights (PDH) to increase information sharing through digital platforms. This webinar will feature three data dashboards that monitor health and education indicators in Guatemala: one for Guatemala’s National Contraceptive Security Commission (CNAA) and two for the country’s Office of Human Rights. Join us to hear from HEP +, MSPAS, and PDH representatives Márgareth Espinoza, Karem Morales, and Claudia Maselli about the HEP + tool development methodology and the impact of creating digital solutions for health and education systems.

En las últimas dos décadas, hemos sido testigos de la creciente complejidad y demandas de nuestros sistemas de salud y educación. Los sistemas de información y tecnología sirven como herramientas innovadoras y accesibles, eficaces para llegar a las personas en la “última milla,” aquellos consumidores de información que viven y trabajan en áreas remotas, experimentando barreras para acceder a la información sobre los servicios de salud y educación. La necesidad de herramientas digitales y la información que proporcionan no ha hecho más que aumentar en la era del COVID-19, con restricciones en los viajes y las reuniones grupales presenciales.

Es en este contexto que el proyecto Health and Education Policy Plus (HEP+) de USAID se asocia con partes interesadas guatemaltecas como el Ministerio de Salud y Asistencia Social (MSPAS) y la Procuraduría de Derechos Humanos (PDH) para aumentar el intercambio de información a través de plataformas digitales. Este seminario web contará con tres paneles de datos que monitorean los indicadores de salud y educación en Guatemala: uno para la Comisión Nacional de Aseguramiento de Anticonceptivos (CNAA) de Guatemala y dos para la Procuraduría de Derechos Humanos del país. Únase a nosotros para escuchar a los representantes de HEP+, MSPAS y PDH Márgareth Espinoza, Karem Morales y Claudia Maselli sobre la metodología de desarrollo de herramientas de HEP+ y el impacto de la creación de soluciones digitales para los sistemas de salud y educación.
