Introducing Global Health TV

June 21, 2007 • Daily Email Recap

The email below is from Global Health Council


Hello Everyone,

I’d like to introduce you to a new Council project for communicating global health messages called Global Health TV — This project is a partnership between the Council and HBL Media, a London-based communications firm, to deliver short video content on global health issues, from news on breakthroughs, to policy issues to voices from the developing world. As you will see on the website there are three channels – news, conference TV and articles. The news section includes news (that seems obvious) and voices from the field. The Conference TV section is with experts at, you guessed it, global health conferences. Right now the Council’s conference is up there, but other organizations hosting conferences on global health issues also will be able to take advantage of this part of the site. Articles is a section provided to help link viewers to more in-depth content on the multitude of global health issues.

The site is live, but we are tweaking it—so it is a work in progress. We’re very excited about this development and hope it will become a strong venue for sharing global health messages. One way you, as communicators of member organizations, can be involved is to volunteer your organization as an expert resource on particular global health issues. Writers generating new global health content for the articles section of the site will need to know who to go to for the facts and it could be your organization. If you would like us to list your organization as an expert resource, please follow the format below and email back to me. Listing your organization as an expert resource doesn’t guarantee that you will be included in any particular articles, but you may be contacted by the writers for information. If unique information you provided is used, your organization will receive attribution. We’ll also let you know if there are opportunities for your organization’s experts to be included in video footage we’re shooting on global health news items.

REMEMBER not to reply to this email because it will go out to the whole group. Please reply to me, individually. Also, do let me know if you have other questions about Global Health TV.
