Organizations, Media Should Keep General Public Engaged, Informed On Global Health Issues

PLOS “Speaking of Medicine”: Engaging the Public on Global Health
Blog contributor Sara Gorman “discusses the need to keep the general public engaged and informed on global health issues.” She cites the findings of a 2012 Kaiser Family Foundation survey of Americans on the U.S. role in global health and writes, “[R]egular engagement in global health issues might prevent the kind of needless and sometimes dangerous hysteria we witnessed with the Ebola epidemic and also target people’s attention and concern to where it would be most helpful” (3/19).
