The abstracts pertaining to the field of digital health and its role in the context of 'Global Health' are invited. Participation in DigiHealthDay 2021 entitles to the publishing of one abstract and paper in the symposium proceedings and the Journal of the International Society for Telemedicine and eHealth (JISfTeH).
