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 Medical Education International Collaborative (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.
