Digital Tech & the Pandemic: Learning from Taiwan’s Crisis Management
Please join us for a panel to discuss technology, public health, and Taiwan.
As an unprepared world reeled under the onslaught of the pandemic, Taiwan stood out for its early success in managing the spread of the virus. Taiwan continues to outperform other states in handling Covid-19, and a big reason is the way in which digital technology is being skillfully deployed for public health purposes within a demanding, vibrant democracy.
Come and hear Taiwan’s trailblazing Digital Minister Audrey Tang give an insider account of how Taiwan “hacked” the pandemic, got and stayed ahead of the crisis, and in the process further invigorated Taiwan’s democracy. Following her keynote address will be two experts who will speak more broadly on the promise and the perils of the digital space for global public health and what we can learn from Taiwan’s experience.
