    The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) offers computer training to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) living at a Protection of Civilian site (PoC 3) run by the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) in Juba. Trainees are taught to type, as well as to organize and file computer records, to access and browse the internet, and to send email.

    The Gender and Digital Health Webinar Series is a platform to foster new partnerships and co-create knowledge on the gendered dimensions of digital technologies for health, with a focus on translation of evidence to policy and practice-based learning in low and middle-income countries. The series is organised by a consortium between UNU IIGH, The University of Cape Town and BBC Media Action.

    The webinar will address three themes:

    1. Global digital gender gap in access

    2. Digital access and use among low literate women in rural India

    3. Digital gender gap in social media access and the implications for health services
