Ciência Viva marked World Health Day with an online program, focused on innovative projects that won the “Comunicar Saúde” competition (watch here) and in person, at the Pavilhão do Conhecimento, in partnership with the Portuguese Literacy Society, to discuss the state of public health in Portugal (watch here).

The Comunicar Saúde contest, launched by Ciência Viva, awarded in 2019 eleven innovative projects with the aim of improving the communication of medical information and promoting health literacy among citizens.

Ana Margarida Almeida, DigiMedia member, was a speaker at the event presenting the project eMental, which was one of the funded projects.
