    Really useful videos for health programs on newborn care. Not surprising that a lot of the viewership comes from India.

    Availability in Indian languages will help tremendously. Are they being translated?
    Some local adaptations would make them more directly usable by large programs. Is there scope?

      Dear Dr. Sridhar,

      We would be very interested in collaborating with organizations or teaching institutions to make our videos available in other languages. If they are voiced over in some of the major Indian languages they will have broad reach. Please let us know if you can help us with that. Thank you.

  2. The videos are useful beyond CHW,
