WiRED Announces Release of Official Organization Video



How do you describe WiRED International in five minutes or less? Now WiRED offers a video that can do just that.


The video—in both short and long versions—was developed to demonstrate how a small volunteer-driven organization can bring free medical information and education to people in remote and troubled areas of the world.


WiRED Board Chair Anthony Hodge said, “Now we have a video to show the kind of work that WiRED carries out to address the inequality of health information in areas of scarcity across the globe.”


Although our WiRED teams travel regularly to isolated areas such as villages in Africa and along the Peruvian Amazon to educate communities about health, anyone can download our more than 350 modules onto laptops or flash drives and take them anywhere in the world. That means our programs are being distributed in the field not only by us but also by our many partner organizations, by community health workers and by hospitals—thus expanding WiRED’s ability to reach and train medically underserved people to take charge of their own health. 


Executive Director Gary Selnow, Ph.D., narrator of the WiRED video, said, “Having our feet on the ground is becoming less important than making it possible for others to carry WIRED’s material into resource-starved regions.”
