Marianna Petrea-Imenokhoeva, founding member of Health Tech Without Borders, is a digital health expert with more than 25 years of experience in the tech industry.
Health Tech Without Borders is a global nonprofit organization aiming to mitigate healthcare crises by leveraging digital tools and technology to provide immediate access to health resources.
When hit with a sudden humanitarian emergency, local communities can be abruptly cut off from basic healthcare. People find themselves disconnected from healthcare professionals, medical institutions, doctors and other life-saving services, while at the same time hospitals and clinics face a sudden influx of patients with highly specific and urgent needs.
Health Tech Without Borders is a global nonprofit organization aiming to mitigate such healthcare crises by leveraging digital tools and technology to provide immediate access to health resources. Health Tech Without Borders acts as an innovative hub that connects companies offering digital tools with experts in medical and psychological care.
Health Tech Without Borders focuses on supporting any person affected by humanitarian disasters while remaining non-sectarian and apolitical.
Since its foundation, HTWB, together with volunteers and partners, has provided more than 170,000 free telehealth consultations, 800 individual mental health support sessions, and education to 2,100+ clinicians, mental health professionals and medical students.
In Health Tech Without Borders, I'm surrounded by amazing individuals whose life's purpose is quite clear. I believe that the desire and intention to help people and communities affected by crises are natural needs. The need to repair, restore hope and share your energy, knowledge and experience with others forms the foundation of life's flow. I don't see this as something extraordinary; rather, it's an everyday need, much like breathing.
At Health Tech Without Borders, we explore different digital health domains and solutions. For us, the important requirement is the readiness for the fast deployment in disaster settings and ease of use for healthcare professionals and citizens. We are open to partnerships with global and local technological companies and providers that are committed to the long-term support of communities affected by humanitarian crises.
October 23 - 27, 2023: Join us for this global action week celebrating the power of information and technology to improve access to healthcare for all communities.
