David Armano, Edelman Digital’s EVP of Global Innovation and Integration spoke Monday about how digital innovation is impacting global health.

Edelman surveyed more than 15,165 people to create a global confidence index. While most values seem high, the survey showed how cultural views of health can skew responses from people. In India, Armano said, percentage is high because good health is measured just by access to clean water. Japan’s percentage might be low, despite its record of long life-expectancy, due to the recent earthquake, tsunami and ensuing crises.

Have a look at Edelman’s graphical summary below and compare it to the Digital Engagement below it.
