Digitalisation and the Future of Health and Social Protection in Asia and Eastern Europe

27. May - 29. May

Digitalisation and the Future of Health and Social Protection in Asia and Eastern Europe is a GIZ Regional Conference, held from the 27th of May to the 29th of May in Bishkek, Kyrgystan.

This year’s regional conference of the GIZ Sector Network Health and Social Protection for Asia and Eastern Europe is being organised in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan under the tagline ‘Avicenna and Artificial Intelligence meet on the Silk Road’. A thousand years after the pathbreaking interdisciplinary work of the Central Asian thinker Avicenna, some 120 participants from across Asia and beyond will come together at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Bishkek to engage in their own interdisciplinary exchanges about the promise and challenges of digitalisation in the fields of health and social protection.

Conference delegates will examine current trends and exchange knowledge and experiences about digitalisation in the context of German and global development cooperation. A particular focus will be on the application of new technologies and the opportunities and challenges they present in relation to improving health and social security systems. Invited external specialists and GIZ health and social protection experts from different countries will provide inputs and share experiences on topics such as artificial intelligence, big data, e-governance, e-identity and challenges related to cybersecurity and data management.
