Global health covers a range of health-related issues, including disease outbreaks, nutrition, and environmental health. With the recent outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), consider conducting health related programming at your Space in coordination with your U.S. Embassy or Consulate. This Global Health Resource Toolkit provides links to lesson plans, articles, videos, and games, as well as the DIY Smithsonian Outbreak exhibit, which can be printed locally.
The United States is a leader in promoting global health, delivering medical assistance and expertise, and conducting research to address health problems. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website www.cdc.gov is the official online source for credible health information. In a rapidly evolving situation like the Coronavirus outbreak, misinformation and fake news can take hold. Consider using this Media Literacy and Countering Disinformation Toolkit to conduct programming to increase resiliency to disinformation.
