About this event

Hear from Jyotsna Vohra, consultant at World Health Organization. A lot of research and innovation is going into early diagnosis and detection of various cancers, leveraging smarter and cheaper devices to collect data. People living with Parkinson or Alzheimer’s disease sometimes lack the tools and technology to live a more normal life to support them with their disease. On the other hand, innovation and research is going into developing tools and techniques to early detect and prevent Alzheimer’s / Parkinson’s / diabetes type 1 and 2.

About Jyotsna: She is currently at WHO, within the European Region, building relationships with key stakeholders in member states to influence legal frameworks and policies that will support population health, and bridge the gap between evidence and action. Supporting the development of products that will have greater impact in the fight against non-communicable diseases.
