Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 21, 2011
Global Health Frontline News (GHFN) today announced the launch of a new blog that will be hosted on the organization’s website, http://www.ghfn.org.
‘Notes from the field’ will feature posts from members of GHFN’s newsgathering crews on assignments in developing countries around the world.
The blog will also feature posts from other members of the global health community including experts working with NGO’s, ministries of health and academic institutions conducting field research.
The ‘Notes from the field’ blog will foster new relationships and encourage greater dialogue on critical global health issues including maternal and child health, neglected tropical diseases, vaccine development and international policy.
Launched in January this year, GHFN assigns video newsgathering crews worldwide to cover major global health stories in partnership with selected broadcasters and Internet platforms. As a nonprofit project with a mission to produce video news stories on global health issues that are largely under-reported by mainstream media, GHFN focuses its coverage on diseases that mainly affect impoverished populations in developing nations – malaria, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and neglected tropical diseases such as river blindness and trachoma – and on maternal/child health and food security.
Funded by nonpartisan donors and operating independently, GHFN follows strict journalistic standards and produces high-quality video news material for broadcast globally by television networks and wide distribution on the Internet.
