In conjunction with a new three part series on global health, the News Hour with Jim Lehrer has launched an excellent online resource for learning about and keeping current with global health information. Developed with support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation the site features lots of multimedia goodies – slideshows, videos, podcasts and helpful graphics – and comes wrapped in an unconventional yellow and gray skin. The site also contains lesson plans to supplement classroom learning.

Populated with information pulled from past segments, its a great starting point for exploring the many dimensions of today’s global health discoveries, challenges and triumphs.
