It’s no secret that the world is becoming a smaller place. Innovations in travel, technology and communication are all helping to bring people from different parts of the globe together. All of this is giving us a clearer picture that we struggle and celebrate the same things as well as showing that we all need the same things – this most definitely applies to public health.
Recently, the fantastic team over at the Disruptive Women in Health Care project, released an ebook that looks into the stories of the changemakers making an impact with their work around the globe to make the world a healthier place. I was excited to have an opportunity to be involved with the making of the resource, discussing what we are doing with the FastForward Health Film project – looking at global health innovation through stories. What the ebook shows us is that there are a variety of issues being tackled in the world of global health that many of you working to brainstorm, design and implement solutions can appreciate.
In the book we have voices from noted leaders such as:
Alanna Shaikh, (@alanna_shaikh) global health and aid/development specialist & TED Fellow
Kate Otto, (@kateotto) public health/development technologist and TEDx speaker
Adele Waugman, (@tech4dev, @mobilizing) international development specialist and former UN Foundation director
Dr. Kate Tulenko, (@ktulenko) author and global health thought leader
I definitely encourage you to download the latest ebook and get up to speed on the dynamic initiatives and ideas taking place to reshape health on a global level! Please also spread the word and distribute among your colleagues – if you’re using Twitter, the hashtag is #DWGlobal.
