As an educator in emergency airway management for many years, I have been so impressed with how transformational a short section of real life, clinical video is in conveying a critical teaching point. The key is knowing what needs to be taught and having the opportunity to capture it on video. Therein lies GHMP’s greatest strength.

The Teaching Power of Video
Our videos are watched and used in virtually every country in the world. They make a life-saving difference for mothers, children, and families. How? By helping the frontline health workers who care for them learn basic skills and information on newborn care, childbirth, and breastfeeding. And by giving these providers the tools they need to educate communities and caregivers.
At this moment, in some part of the world, there is a Global Health Media Project video playing. That’s because our videos provide practical, hands-on knowledge and clinical education—at no cost—enabling health workers in low-resource settings to save lives. Staff from UNICEF, WHO, Save the Children, Ministries of Health, various global teaching institutions, and NGO’s both large and small, all embrace this highly effective training tool and use it, share it, and distribute it daily.
The Multiplier Effect
The greater the usage, the greater potential for impact. It’s really that simple.
We make our videos as accessible as possible by providing various bandwidths to address connectivity challenges, as well as various formats for different display needs — from mobile phones to tablets to computers. By teaching health care best practices in simple and easy to follow visual steps that can be accessed on any device, our videos are improving health outcomes daily. The greater the usage, the greater potential for impact. It’s really that simple.
