Digital health inclusion with BAME communities


How can digital engage BAME communities to help improve their health?

Health Watch Tower Hamlets is working with local schools and community groups to investigate ways that digital inclusion can help the Bangladeshi community in Tower Hamlets.

Research shows that this community has lower health engagement and less likely to take up digital means to help manage health or access health information.

This pathfinder is a collaboration between Health Watch Tower Hamlets, Tower Hamlets Together and Tower Hamlets CCG.

The documents below will chronicle the insights that we are gathering and the reasons behind what we have tried.
