Countries around the world are turning to eHealth to enhance service delivery in every aspect of life. Developing countries like Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, India, Kenya and Rwanda have taken bold steps towards revolutionizing their Health Sector with use of eHealth. Pakistan has built experience with eHealth applications, but requires commitment
and direction from all the stakeholders to move this forward. The efforts for development of a National eHealth strategy come at an important time when Pakistan is developing its new Health Policy. The Conference will build understanding on the importance of eHealth strategy, and suggest a roadmap to achieve this endeavor by sharing the knowledge and experience of eHealth experts and researchers.

The eHealth Association of Pakistan (eHAP) is an IMIA Member Society, having been admitted at the 2011 General Assembly meeting.
