About IWEEE:

The International Workshop on e-Health in Emerging Economies (IWEEE) is an annual conference for Free (Freedom) Software in Healthcare and Social Medicine advocates. The workshop promotes Free Software as an effective and ethical solution to provide universality and equity in health care.

This year, the theme of IWEEE is "People before Patients". We will put the attention on health promotion and disease prevention. Share your government experiences and ideas, such as how your government is improving Public Health with Free Software, or personal health devices using open hardware.

IWEEE brings together a multi-disciplinary team representing NGOs, Academia, Government and companies to share their experiences and to try to find ways to improve the lives of millions of human beings around the world. IWEEE focuses on the human factor and raising awareness about the current situation of societies.


IWEEE is a non-profit event organized by GNU SOLIDARIO.

City/Location: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
