The Role of Emerging Technologies in Women's Health and Sustainable Development

Sustainable development requires the empowerment of women. Women’s empowerment is incomplete without access to health services in every life-stage. While there is no magic pill, the emergence of new technologies makes it possible for developing countries to aspire to reach higher levels of health empowerment for women in a shorter time with minimal new budgetary outlays.

Today’s economic situation doesn’t have to determine current and future health empowerment of women. The paper provides insights needed for policy interventions, aided by technology, to ensure women’s health empowerment and social justice.

We propose a technology model that considers the community and the individual aspects of women’s health empowerment. An integrated approach using emerging technologies like AI, IoT and blockchain can help scale the current health infrastructure and harness the power of ecosystems to address critical gaps, while enabling real-time data-driven decisions that help women take control of their health.
