About

Welcome to Global Health NOW (GHN), a key forum for news and information for the global health community.

Launched as a free weekday e-newsletter in March 2014, GHN has quickly gathered thousands of subscribers worldwide who rely on it as a source for their global health news. The mobile-ready website globalhealthnow.org came online in March 2015, delivering more exclusive stories and commentaries, breaking news, and news summaries.

The GHN staff scours the global media and selects the day’s most important articles about research, trends and events to summarize in the e-newsletter and on the website. The email is sent every weekday morning, and the website is updated shortly thereafter. In addition, links to breaking news stories are posted to the website throughout the day.

GHN staff writers and freelance writers also create original content including news articles, commentaries and Q&As with global health leaders and newsmakers. GHN also regularly publishes op-eds by global experts. Collaborations with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, the Consortium of Universities for Global Health, This Week in Global Health, and PhotoShare (a service of the Knowledge for Health [K4Health] project, based at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for Communication Programs) ensure that GHN provides varied and valuable content from varied perspectives.

In addition to being a vibrant resource for global health news, the GHN website also makes it easy for you to share your favorite GHN stories on social media. Topic-driven content and tags for malaria, HIV, etc. allow you to quickly find articles and summaries that interest you.

Global Health NOW is a not-for-profit initiative of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Views and opinions expressed in this email do not necessarily reflect those of the Bloomberg School.
