Professor Jadad is a physician, educator, researcher, and public advocate, whose mission is to help improving health and wellness for all, through human networks fueled by innovative uses of information and communication technologies. He has been called a ‘human Internet', as his research and innovation work seeks to identify and connect the best minds, the best knowledge, and the best tools across traditional boundaries to eliminate unnecessary suffering. Such work focuses on a radical ‘glocal' innovation model designed to improve the capacity of humans to imagine, to create, and to promote new and better approaches for living, healing, working, and learning across the world. Powered by social networks and other leading-edge telecommunication tools, his projects attempt to anticipate and respond to major public health threats (e.g., multiple chronic conditions, pandemics) through strong and sustainable international collaboration, and to enable the public (particularly young people) to shape the health system and society. Alejandro Jadad holds various positions at the University of Toronto and the University Health Network, all related to the creation and optimization of human health. He is the Canada Research Chair in eHealth Innovation; founder of the Centre for Global eHealth Innovation; Senior Scientist at the Centre for Health, Wellness and Cancer Survivorship (ELLICSR); and Professor at the Departments of Anesthesia, Faculty of Medicine, and at the Dalla Lana Faculty of Public Health. The interview was conducted by Professor Claus Vögele.
