"Everyone should have access to adequate healthcare. It cannot be that people are driven into financial ruin when they undergo treatment, or that every eleven seconds, a pregnant woman or newborn baby dies." -Sunjoy Mathieu

Sunjoy Mathieu
Co-Founder & President
Women in Digital Health

Briefly describe what you do to support health equity.

I co-founded Women in Digital Health, a partner of the HIMSS Women in Health IT Community, where we give women working in healthcare, and women's health more visibility. Our goals include promoting their causes, connecting them, (helping them) become leaders, and to make an impact on fundamental topics that continue to shape our future. I also support a learning platform that promotes digital health literacy.

What urgent health equity need do you see as most pressing to address?

Everyone should have access to adequate healthcare. It cannot be that people are driven into financial ruin when they undergo treatment, or that every eleven seconds, a pregnant woman or newborn baby dies.          

Why are you passionate about championing health equity?

Making an impact on health equity is one of the most purposeful things I can imagine. It’s also one of the reasons why we founded Women in Digital Health.

What gives you hope for the future?

Despite the crazy pandemic times, there are still people around the world striving to make an impact, working tirelessly for patients and saving their lives.
