Introduction:

Organized by Tereza Hendl, Bianca Jansky, Niels Nijsingh and Verina Wild

Mobile health (mHealth) technologies are increasingly utilized worldwide. These involve a diverse range of apps, wearables, implants and other digital devices that purport to improve health. While these technologies have considerable potential to improve health, the developments in mobile health technology affect individuals and societies in ways that raise numerous ethical questions. One gap in the discussions involves the ethical implications that arise from a global, globalized and international perspective. At this workshop, we will therefore take a specific look at the ethical and social implications of mHealth technologies as a global phenomenon
