http://digitalhealthdays.se Digital | Health Days 2014 - How disruptive technology changes the world | Part three Panel: Is Hans Rosling Right? Bas Hoefman | Co-founder and CEO, Text2Change MD Gunther L Faber | Chairman, OneFamilyHealth Angus Rowe | Chairman, LifeSense Group Moderators | Donnie SC Lygonis and Ebba Blitz ***** Not everyone who spends his or her time working with healthcare issues and research becomes a household name outside their own home turf, but Hans Rosling has become something that is best described as a superstar thanks to the mind-boggling figures he has presented, for example in his TED talk (http://www.ted.com/speakers/hans_rosling). Most people sketch up a rather gloomy image when talking about developing countries, but Rosling – among others – have provided the world with a more optimistic view on the situation. But is he right? Bas Hoefman, co-founder and chairman of Text2Change (http://www.texttochange.org/), Gunther L Faber, chairman and CEO of One Family Health (http://businessinnovationfacility.org/page/one-family-health-child-and-family-wellness-clinics-cfw-zambia) and Angus Rowe, chairman of Life Science Group (http://www.lifesciencesweden.se/) took the stage to discuss this and share their thoughts on the aforementioned subject.
