Rural Health Equity
through Social Enterprise
and Technology Synergies
Health [in]Equity: Health inequities are systematic differences in health that are caused by the unfair distribution of resources, wealth, and power in society.
Social Enterprise: A social enterprise is an organization with social objectives. Social enterprises generate revenue but re-invest any extra for community benefit.
Technology Synergies: Digital health technologies are revolutionizing health and health/social care and open new possibilities for reducing inequities. Combining technology WITH social enterprise (aka synergies), can create sustainable effects greater than the sum of their separate effects.
