Terms of Use

All videos and content on this website are protected by copyright. By accessing and viewing the content on this website and associated mobile applications, you agree to be legally bound by the following terms and conditions.

We create teaching videos to help frontline health workers learn skills and practices that improve health care and health outcomes throughout the world, especially in low-resource and underserved communities. We also create teaching videos for community members:  mothers, caregivers, and women and their partners. Extraordinary amounts of time, effort, care and medical expertise go into the creation of each Global Health Media Project video.

All of our videos can be watched on our website so that they are easily accessible and widely available for your personal, non-commercial use.

To download our videos, however, you first need to sign up. As we explain in detail below and on our registration page, we have free and paid licenses available depending on how and where the videos are used. In general, videos can be downloaded and used for no charge for personal learning or in low-income countries when a fee is not being charged. All other users—those charging a fee for their work or using them in high-income countries—must pay a nominal annual fee. Our licensing is done on the honor system – we trust our users to respect these terms. Licensing fees help support our mission, sustain our work, and extend our impact.

Video downloads. If you would like to download our videos, you will need to sign up. Specific terms of use for those downloading our videos depend on how and where the videos are used (see registration page for details). In general, individuals may download our videos at no charge for their personal learning. Individuals or organizations that charge fees for educational activities that include our videos or use our videos in higher-income countries pay a small annual fee. You are not allowed to upload any of the videos on this site to your own YouTube channel, Vimeo, or other public or private platform.

Licensing for Video Downloaders

Our licensing system is designed to reflect how and where our videos are used. Individuals who would like to use the videos for their own personal learning—or share them with other caregivers, friends, and families—may sign up for a free license. Individuals who teach or train only in lower-income countries—or who work for organizations working in these countries—may also sign up for a free license as long as they are not charging for educational activities. For the purposes of licensing, we define lower-income countries as all countries in Africa, Asia (excluding Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan), and Latin America.

Individuals or organizations/companies that would like to use the videos in any classes, workshops, or other educational activities for which a fee is charged must pay for a license. This is commercial use and paid licenses are required anywhere in the world, including lower-income countries. Individuals or organizations/companies that would like to use the videos for educational activities in any higher-income countries must also pay for a license, even if learners are not being charged directly. For purposes licensing, we define higher-income countries as USA, Canada, Europe, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, and New Zealand.

If you have any questions about licensing, please ask. We are a small nonprofit, and funds from licenses are used exclusively for the continued development of high-quality health care teaching videos for worldwide use. The videos in the Nutrition Series may not be used commercially under any circumstances.
