Thursday Live Health

You can join the webinar here briefly before 4pm. 


From the Covid app to data management, prediction engines, contract tracing and much more, Tech has played a major role in the health response to Covid-19.

Join the NZ Ministry of Health's Digital and Data head Shayne Hunter as he outlines the role Tech has played to date in the health response including lessons learnt and opportunities for the future. He'll also provide some insight into the "war room" efforts that led to New Zealand's world-leading response. 

As always, there'll be plenty of time for Q&A, with ITP CEO Paul Matthews putting your questions to Shayne.

The session will kick off with ITP's Tech Media Panel talking through the big tech news of the week.
