Addressing Digital Health’s Gender Gap | Dr. Kudzai Kanhutu, HIC 2019 & Royal Melbourne University


It’s no surprise that digital health — the union of two traditionally male-dominated fields, medicine and IT — has similar problems when it comes to gender gaps in pay and leadership positions. How is this playing out in Australia? Dr. Kudzai Kanhutu, Deputy Chief Medical Officer at Royal Melbourne University and Chair for HIC 2019, weighs in on inclusivity and diversity in healthcare and the other key themes she hoped would rise to the surface at HIC19.
