Global Health TV has a makeover!
We are passionate about Global Health TV. Although the team behind the channel works on other projects, Global Health TV occupies a special place in our hearts. There are many reasons for this.
We love getting out in the field shooting short documentaries in far-flung places, experiencing cultures far different from our own and using our film making skills. We’re proud of the results and even won awards.
We also get to bring you all the latest developments in global health, interviewing some of the most prominent people in the field (as well as one-or-two celebrities), sharing their sometimes-controversial but always thought-provoking views with you, our viewers. Which brings us to the website, the heart of Global Health TV.
In a community as scattered as the global health one, there’s very little opportunity for sharing ideas, discussing issues and finding out what peers around the world are doing. We are proud that globalhealthtv.com fills this space. We update you at-least weekly with the latest news and interviews with policy and decision-makers. We have the biggest online library of short documentaries anywhere - and we don’t restrict your access. All you need is a computer and internet connection and, whatever your specific interest, chances are you’ll find a film about it.
The channel has come a long way in the past four years. To celebrate, we have given Global Health TV a new look and an exciting new web site. We’re sure you’ll let us know what you think. Global Health TV’s viewers are a vocal bunch, sending us messages in response to our reports, following us on Twitter, You Tube and Facebook, and stopping to chat with our crews at global health events.
We’re delighted that Global Health TV now reaches hundreds of thousands of viewers each month but we want more! Get involved! Comment on reports and documentaries you watch, let us know what you think of our work, share Global Health TV with your colleagues.
We’re going to use this space to let you know a little more about the work that goes on behind the scenes of Global Health TV. Check back for musings from the team as we head around the world to bring Global Health TV to you.
