Accessible and engaging health education saves lives.

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 access to health education can save lives. Through the Digital MEdIC initiative, our goal is to make engaging, evidence-based health education globally accessible and, in so doing, empower communities to improve their own health outcomes.

Since 2017, Digital Medic has been working with under-resourced communities to create easily adaptable, video-based health education content to support health programs and initiatives. We work to equip those providing frontline healthcare with the tools and knowledge they need to effectively care for their populations, while simultaneously empowering patients with the knowledge they need to improve their own health outcomes.

What We Do

Education Design
We design learning experiences that change behaviors and address high impact health needs. Our human-centered design process yields content that is localized, effective, and continuously improving and scalable.
Global Collaboration
We build strategic collaborations to increase global access to targeted health education. Our Digital MEdIC content currently reaches hundreds of thousands of learners through online platforms and our mobile app.
Impact Evaluation
We conduct rigorous impact evaluations to measure knowledge acquisition and long-term health outcomes. Our research team is pushing the frontier of digital health education, and creating a blueprint for the future.
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.
