Innovation & Partnership to Advance Global Goals in Health

It takes a little bit of innovation and creativity to use the same tools to solve a gray haired problem. Shirley Bejarano, Graduate Research Assistant at University of South Florida ,shared her thoughts on the various ways that innovation and technology have helped healthcare workers complete their jobs in a more culturally conclusive manner.

While chatting she highlighted the use of technology to track certain infectious diseases as well as aid in the elimination of mother to child transmission of HIV.

Technological advances are present in almost every aspect of our lives, but they are so crucial in the global public health field. Health workers in rural areas are now able to use mobile applications to receive up to date information which in turn leads to healthier and happier patients. So our phones are more than Twitter tools and Instagram incubators they are amazing tools for change.

Johnson & Johnson and Caring Crowd provide funding for a unique combination of purpose based services.  Countless individuals throughout the world are able to help combat the spread of infectious diseases, provide quality maternal care and identify viruses as well as various other health related activities.

Girls’ Globe is sponsored by Johnson & Johnson to provide coverage during the Global Citizen Festival and to share the stories of the Young Leaders who are participating in the activities in New York.
