A human rights-based approach to technology

---

Hi reader,

Living with a chronic disease can put your capacity to live independently at stake. This is why i-PROGNOSIS takes up this opportunity to reaffirm its commitment to work hand in hand with citizens and patients for their wellbeing and dignity no matter age or health status they are.

This December, the international community will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the UN General Assembly. Seventy years after its adoption, the Declaration is just as powerfully relevant as it was on its first day.

In i-PROGNOSIS, partners are committed to ensure the human rights of older persons and people living with Parkinson’s disease are respected and that technology is developed as an enabler contributing to people's independent living and quality of life.

The different policy frameworks in place, such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), are driving the way forward towards a better public health for all. The recently established European Commission Steering Group on Health Promotion, Disease Prevention and Management of Non-Communicable Diseases is exploring how to provide relevant health data and intelligence to support decision-making.

However, to unleash the full potential of these intelligent systems, those designing, developing and operating these systems will need to get rid of the ageist stereotypes that hinder our capacity to develop fair, accountable and transparent artificial intelligence.

Keep spreading the word about our early detection app! Data collection to help us refine algorithms screening for Parkinson’s early symptoms will keep going until October 2019. Download the iPrognosis mobile application for free on Google Play Store in Germany, Greece, Portugal and the UK (and soon in Spain!).
