Outline of overall workshop: The focus of this workshop is to increase capacity and knowledge of delegates in leveraging different digital tools to enhance health equity and Indigenous health objectives. The workshop is a collaboration between the WFPHA Global Health Equity and Digital Technology and Indigenous Working Groups and will begin with a short Introduction into concepts regarding digital health tools, human-centered design, and specific Indigenous health challenges that will be co-presented by working group chairs. After the Introduction to the workshop, participants will be guided through a short co-ideation and co-design session around specific Indigenous health challenges that can benefit from digital health approaches. Delegates will be provided information on different resources, software, and tools that can be used for rapid prototyping of digital health solutions and can actively participate in the workshop by helping to formulate solutions for specific Indigenous health challenge case studies. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to present their thoughts, solution ideas, and possible prototypes to all workshop attendees and have them evaluated by workshop chairs and speakers. Using this approach, we hope to generate innovative ideas that address unique and underserved areas in global health, health equity, and Indigenous health while also building capacity by enabling participants to continue to explore digital health solutions in their own communities. Specific Aims/Objectives: 1. Describe how human-centered approaches in digital health design and innovation can help enhance health equity and Indigenous health objectives, 2. Identify different human-centered design resources, tools, software, and methods for purposes of rapid prototyping of solutions, 3. Provide participants the opportunity to co-design digital health tools and present them for expert and group feedback. Key questions workshop will address: The key questions that will be addressed in this workshop include: (1) what type of digital health tools and human-centered design approaches have been used to address health equity?; (2) how do we ensure that the next generation of digital tools are designed purposefully for the needs of distinct communities, including specifically Indigenous peoples?; and (3) how do we incorporate concepts such as Indigenous Data Sovereignty into digital health design and commercialization in a sustainable manner.
