Global Health Ideas

Finding global health solutions through innovation and technology

Blogroll update…Global Health Journalism

I would like to note the addition of two fantastic blogs to our blogroll. The first, is SmallShift – “a blog built around the belief that technology in the hands of passionate users can inspire change…”

The second is Global Health Report, by the prolific science and medical writer – Christine Gorman. She will be a Nieman Foundation Fellow at Harvard where she will focus on global health media issues. Christine Gorman has written on health and medical topics for over two decades and has been at TIME Magazine since the mid 1980s where she had an award winning column (“Your Health”). In addition to her numerous other awards she wrote the 1996 TIME person of the year issue on AIDS expert David Ho. It is great to get a couple more outstanding voices in the lonely global health blogosphere.

On that note, I highly recommend reading Gorman’s speech at the Global Health Council on getting more involved and global health journalism. You can view her speech on her blog and see other coverage at Forum One. Enjoy!

  1. Thank you both for your comments. It is blogs like yours that inspire me to continue with this site and to continue posting so that we can share ideas, advocate and hopefully spur some to action.

  2. Thanks. During my Nieman year, I hope to create a new venue that will help plug the gap on global health news coverage. The idea is to have a sustained, independent editorial voice devoted entirely to global health and development. The recipe so far: a pinch of Jon Stewart, a dash of Global Voices Online and the Post-Normal Times (all the news that doesn’t fit) plus a strong commitment to the best journalism has to offer. All this is obviously subject to change and not something I can do alone. So stay tuned and keep in touch!

  3. Thanks for the hookup! What started as an online proof of concept/skunkworks project has taken on a life of its own. A little online validation doesn’t hurt either.
