ance learning on new solutions, needed breakthroughs and scaling current barriers. Critical eHealth issues will be discussed in eight targeted conference sessions: The Path to Interoperability, Public Health Informatics and National Health Information systems, Access to Information and Knowledge-sharing, Capacity building for eHealth, Electronic Health Records, Mobile Health (mHealth) and Mobile Telemedicine, National eHealth Policies and Unlocking eHealth Markets.

Two parallel sessions will take place each week, from July 13 to August 8, 2008. The overarching goal of the conference is to develop support for workable solutions and to give new impetus for collaboratively funding, designing and deploying eHealth systems in the Global South and around the world.

The Rockefeller Foundation has partnered with a number of leading institutions in order to organize the conference, including the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA), International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA), Health Level Seven (HL7), Health Metrics Network (HMN), Latin American and Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information (BIREME), Partners in Health (PIH), Regenstrief Institute, Telemedicine Society of India, United Nations Foundation (UNF), Vodafone Group Foundation Technology Partnership, University of Washington's Center for Public Health Informatics, and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Tim Evans, MD, Assistant Director-General for Information, Evidence and Research at the World Health Organization (WHO), and a Making the eHealth Connection summer conference series organizer, said, "This event is an important landmark. It shows global commitment to eHealth's role in health systems, underscoring the World Health Assembly resolution on eHealth in 2005, and is intended to support WHO's efforts to promote equitable access to essential care worldwide."
