Quality (149) Raising the Quality of Healthcare - Uncharted Ground

22 July, 2021

Our new podcast(s) about raising the quality of healthcare in the developing world are now available, and I'm eager for the HIFA community's feedback! The podcast, called "Uncharted Ground," is hosted by the Stanford Social Innovation Review. The latest episode, called "The Healing Force of Family," is about Noora Health's work in India, where it trains families of ill patients to aid their recovery--with some remarkable results. The first episode, called "The Videos Saving Lives in the Developing World," was noted on HIFA a few months ago. It profiles Global Health Media (a HIFA member) and the impact of its instructional videos for health workers on the quality of maternal-child care. Please find these episodes at ssir.org/unchartedground -- or go to any of the major podcast platforms you prefer (Apple, Spotify, Google, Stitcher), and search on "Uncharted Ground." Again, we'd be grateful for any feedback you have. [*note from HIFA]

[*Note from HIFA moderator (Neil PW): Apologies to Jonathan, this message got held up a few days before distribution. I had a look at the website and 'Uncharted Ground' looks fascinating. It 'tells the stories of nonprofit and social entrepreneurs at the forefront of global development. Host Jonathan Levine takes you on their journeys to solve some of the most daunting social issues on the planet'. I look forward to read some of the stories!]
