An exciting opportunity to work with WHO Collaborating Center for eHealth (WHOCC-eHealth), UNSW Sydney. WHOCC-eHealth been allocated a UNSW Scientia PhD scholarship to support  a PhD student to research around the topic "global eHealth, social business and citizen engagement".

This project explores citizen and community engagement and equity through the lens of social business and eHealth in the context of achieving the WHO SDGs. A conceptual framework incorporating clinical and population health processes, impacts and outcomes will be developed and tested within the constructs of the WHO Integrated Patient-Centred Health System (IPCHS) Framework and eHealth Strategy. The use cases for this research will include cross-national and cross-cultural health, including Aboriginal health in Australia and WHO member countries in the Asia Pacific. Our network of eHealth and social business centres of excellence will collaborate in this integrative program of research.

This is a prestigious and generous scholarship targeted at well qualified individuals. The UNSW Scientia PhD Scholarships is currently accepting expression of interest (EOI). Please contact us if you are interested or know of suitable candidates who will qualify. 

A digital disease detection tool that picked up signals of an outbreak of Zika months earlier than it was officially detected in Brazil has won the UNSW ZikaHACK competition. The tool can generate early outbreak signals using data from Google Trends, Wikipedia and Twitter has won the competition.

The NHMNRC Centre for Research Excellence, Integrated Systems for Epidemic Response (ISER) sponsored the international challenge for multidisciplinary teams of students to develop a digital tool for early disease detection.

The winning team had an unbeatable combination: a PhD student in public health, an undergraduate computer science student with an interest in health data science, and another final year undergraduate student from Brazil with a strong personal motivation to find novel responses to the Zika emergency.
