Social Innovation for the Sustainability


Digital Health, Global Health and Ethics. A look from the human rights approach

Celia Fernández Aller

There is a growing consensus on the need to reflect on the ethical and legal principles that should guide the introduction of new technologies (Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, the Internet of Things, etc.) in digital health. Without ethics, the uses made of technology will not be compatible with the Sustainable Development Goals, nor with the well-being of society, nor with global health. Furthermore, we must consider that we live in a world where digital technology is invading everything, including health, and where we will have to reinvent approaches that are scientifically sound and socially fair.
