Expanding Knowledge. Improving Health.

Community health education resources & research.

The World Health Organization estimates a shortage of 10 million health workers by 2030, primarily in low- and lower-middle-income communities. The burden of preventable morbidity and mortality will continue to fall on these communities and widen gaps in global health equity unless more health workers are trained now.

At the same time, the spread of medical misinformation is growing in the public domain — on some social media platforms, falsehoods are 70% more likely to be shared than facts.

At Digital Medic, we envision a world where all communities have access to engaging, evidence-based, and actionable health information. Our mission is to improve the health of global communities by advancing the field of health education, building capacity for the health workforce, and expanding information equity worldwide.
