The Digital Gender Gap (And Why It Matters in Health)

Access to digital devices and to the internet has become such an integral part of our lives, that many would find it hard to do without. But not everyone across the globe nor across communities have equal access to the digital world, and one of the main issues is the digital gender gap. We explore why the digital gender gap matters and how we can close that gap, together with Dr Claudia Lopes, Research Lead with the United Nations University International Institute for Global Health.
