Among the most prominent events organized by MoHAP's Training & Development Center was the Digital Health Hackathon “Future Health 2071”, which dealt with the ideas and challenges that can shape the future of healthcare, specifically artificial intelligence (AI), personalized medicine, and the role of technology in improving access to healthcare.
