Global Health Media Project creates teaching videos on basic health care practices for providers and people in low-resource settings. The organization was founded by Deborah Van Dyke, whose work and experience in South Sudan helped her see that practical, “how-to” videos would be an effective way to teach health workers at scale. Their live-action videos—filmed in developing world clinics—feature “best-practice” care with real patients. They have now produced more than 200 videos that fill an important gap in health care education worldwide.
