Expanding Knowledge. Improving Health.


Logo for Stanford Center for Health Education

Access to health education is a human right.

The World Health Organization reports that trained and supported community health workers could prevent 3 million annual child deaths worldwide. However, many medically-underserved communities lack access to health education and the knowledge to improve their 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.

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.
