The GHMP Team

About Us

We are a global leader in creating live-action health care teaching videos for low-resource settings.

Founders Story

In a remote corner of South Sudan — where I was running a medical program with MSF/Doctors Without Borders—I was called to a difficult birth in the middle of the night.

When I arrived our doctor and midwife were trying to resuscitate the baby. I quickly realized that they didn’t know how and I intervened. We started giving the baby breaths and he soon started breathing on his own.

This experience affected me deeply. I thought of all the health workers across the world who face the anguish of a newborn not breathing and don’t know how to help. It’s an infrequently needed but life-saving skill—a skill every birth attendant needs to know….

I imagined video …
showing health workers how a limp blue
newborn can come alive with breaths.
… I knew if they could see that,
they would never forget it.”

…From the first video, we learned these tools resonated with the needs of global health organizations and health workers as we received extraordinary testimonials and feedback. Our videos are being shared widely and finding their way into training programs, distance learning courses, apps, and websites—and into the hands of frontline health workers.

As of the beginning of 2021, we have completed 150+ videos in 50 languages (80 including our three animations) that have been watched over 500 million times and used by more than 7,000 organizations worldwide.  

Since the Covid-19 pandemic, the uptake of our videos has surged as digital and distant learning solutions are increasingly relevant and needed. At the same time, technological advances continue to lower the cost and expand the reach of digital resources into the world’s most underserved areas.

Thank you for taking an interest in our work and our mission—to help save lives, one health care teaching video at a time.
