Health Technology is not only about devices and diseases but also about people and institutions,” says Tania Douglas, Professor of biomedical engineering at the University of Capetown.

In her speech, she addresses the global health issues and how they can be tackled with the technology in a smart way. Tania emphasizes that technology can have both positive and negative outcomes.
