Whoa. Things look different!
They are. The spiffy new look for the GHN email is our way of letting you know we’ve launched the new GHN website:
globalhealthnow.org aims to be an essential website for the global health community and a key forum for sharing news and information.
We know you love the email—don’t worry, it’s still going to arrive in your inbox every weekday. But the email format had a limited word count and a reach. It wasn’t easy for people to find us or to share our content.
The new GHN website has a number of advantages:
- More room for exclusive stories and commentaries
- Breaking news during the day
- A comments section so you can join the conversation
- Easy sharing of your favorite GHN stories on social media
- Topic-driven content and tags. (Want to see all the critical malaria news? Click on the malaria topic.)
Plus, we have a vastly expanded content through our GHN connections section, including:
- Articles from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting
- The webcast from the awesome This Week in Global Health team
- Photos from PhotoShare
- Dayna’s Global Health book club; and more.
Special thanks for associate editor Dayna Kerecman Myers for her amazing work on the website. And massive kudos go to David Croft, Mike Riley, Jonathan Herndon and the idfive team who created the site, and ace writers Maryalice Yakutchik, Jackie Powder and Salma Warshanna-Sparklin.
So, please stop by globalhealthnow.org and take it for a spin. Then let us know what you think.

PS: Look for special coverage from the Consortium of Universities for Global Health conference. Dayna and I are here in Boston. If you’re in town, please stop by our exhibit in Republic A. We’d love to meet you. And free coffee!
