World Breastfeeding Week is the first week of August.

The videos are designed to help breastfeeding mothers by providing them with practical information on “how to” skills and problem management. Click here to read the news release.

The first two videos— “Breastfeeding in the First Hours After Birth” and “Positions for Breastfeeding”—are now available in English, Spanish, and French. They may be downloaded free-of-charge from our video library.

Huffington Post spreads the word on The Story of Ebola

Today’s Huffington Post describes The Story of Ebola as a “complicated scientific message delivered in an easy to understand format.” Georgianne Nienaber tells of the important role the film plays in helping to educate villagers in West Africa who have had to cope with misinformation, fear, and confusion as this disease enveloped their communities.

The film was produced by Global Health Media Project in collaboration with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), UNICEF, and Yoni Goodman. Voice-overs in local languages are underway.

The Story of Ebola just released

The Story of Ebola—produced by Global Health Media Project (GHMP) in collaboration with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), UNICEF, and Yoni Goodman—is now available to help ongoing educational and awareness efforts in West Africa. Voice-overs in local languages are underway.

The animated film features a young girl whose grandfather dies from Ebola and puts the rest of her family at risk and their village at risk. Woven through the story are critical messages to help people better understand Ebola, see themselves within the context of an outbreak, and see how to act in ways that can keep themselves safe from the disease and protect their communities.

“Strengthening communication interventions is vital,” notes the IFRC-UNICEF-GHMP news release. “The re-emergence of cases in what were thought to be cleared locations in Sierra Leone and Guinea, as well as new cases in Liberia are reminders that this epidemic is far from over and could easily spread to other countries.”
