This study discusses how technological innovations and
integrations can help address the underlying social and
cultural barriers to gender equality, both in the public
healthcare system and more broadly. The use of mobile
health (mHealth) applications and telemedicine are
presented as examples of technological innovations that can
help provide women with greater access to healthcare
services and a greater sense of privacy and autonomy. The
importance of designing technological innovations with
input from the communities they are meant to serve is
emphasized to ensure that these innovations are culturally
appropriate and responsive to the needs and priorities of
women and girls. References to relevant studies are
provided to support these points.
