Accepted Paper:

What are the data for? Medical privacy and the secret lives of data in the e-health era in Benin.  
Dominique Somda (HUMA-UCT)

Paper short abstract:

The paper explores the hopes and fears of medical professionals as healthcare centers digitize their processes in compliance with the new regulations on data protection. Interpreting, circulating, and archiving data through digital instruments and platforms create new tensions.

Paper long abstract:

With this presentation, I aim to examine the evolving configurations of secrecy, privacy, and transparency in the e-health era in Africa. What are the data for? In Benin, medical professionals themselves interrogate their changing strategies to protect the data of their patients and intentions behind data collections and interpretations, as digital platforms and instruments are massively adopted in healthcare centers. This presentation analyzes the discourses and practices of doctors, nurses, administrators, and developers who engender new relations to the data they produce.
