Expanding Knowledge. Improving Health.


Logo for Stanford Center for Health Education

Access to health education is a human right.

Every year, 5 million children die globally before reaching their fifth birthday, mostly from preventable illness. Lack of access to health education leaves medically underserved communities across the globe without the proper knowledge to improve health outcomes. At the Stanford Center for Health Education, we believe that expanding access to engaging education has the power to change behaviors, improve health, and ultimately save lives. Through the Digital Medic initiative, we are committed to reaching communities worldwide with accurate, timely, and understandable health information.

After three months of piloting the content, we conducted informal focus group discussions to understand their experience and whether the content was well-adopted and integrated into their workload.

We are really thankful for your partnership and openness, openness in terms of content to ensure there is alignment...the open relationship to be able to say ‘this needs tweaked here’. It’s really co-creation.
