Transparency and Healthcare: Shifting the Power at #OGP13

At the recent Open Government Partnership Summit, Loren had the opportunity to showcase transparency initiatives which are improving healthcare delivery across Africa, many of which have been devised locally. This was part of a speaker session and panel discussion chaired by Tim Kelsey, the National Director for Patients and Information at NHS England.

 

Loren’s speech can be seen from 1hr 3mins into the video. She also highlighted initiatives which are improving access to basic health information and enabling citizens to access critical information on parliamentary proceedings and elected representatives so that they can more actively participate in democratic processes.
