The Global Health Council announces the launch of Global Health TV, a new web-based video site bringing brief news clips from experts and civil society on the major health issues faced by people throughout the world. This new service is a collaborative project between HBL Media, a London-based communications agency and the Council.
The Global Health TV website, http://www.globalhealthtv.com, will bring viewers three streams of information, including news and global health policies, highlights of international conferences, and voices from people working on health issues at the community level.
Links to additional information on specific topics will accompany video segments and access to breaking global health news will be available on the site.
By supporting the development of Global Health TV, HBL Media and the Council seek to advance understanding of global health issues, particularly issues that disproportionately affect the world's poorest people -- including the impact of HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, poor health system support and maternal and child health issues.
"Global Health TV helps us share information about the critical health issues of our times," said Dr. Nils Daulaire, president of the Global Health Council. "In a world where health and diseases know no borders, it's important that the public and leaders understand better what problems face people in developing countries, what roles the developed countries play in addressing these issues, and what all of us need to know about improving health worldwide."
