Hello!

Welcome to this week’s intelligence report from Health Analytics Asia.
Recently, I was at a conference in Guwahati, Assam –gateway to the picturesque northeastern region of India. As experts shared their experiences of battling the myriad healthcare challenges unique to the province, the significance of effective communication emerged as the recurring theme.

A local university engaged with the community of tea garden workers to produce an engaging educational video on reducing the intake of salt to curb alarmingly high rates of hypertension and maternal mortality. An indigenous community radio station, Radio Brahmaputra, gave voice to the voiceless and spread the power of knowledge through the grassroots over the last decade. The stories were many, each inspiring in diverse ways.

The underlying message was loud and clear: In order to succeed in finding sustainable solutions to problems that plague our societies, we must work together. Because together everyone achieves more.

As a data-driven health news initiative that works with an ever-growing network of Pan-Asian doctors, healthcare specialists, data scientists and fact-checkers, Health Analytics Asia believes in the power of collaboration. To combat the epidemic of fake and unverified health news all around us, we need to join forces. Here’s your chance to make a difference.

We are rolling out the red carpet for medical practitioners, public health experts, bioinformatics researchers, authors, health journalists, bloggers and healthcare enthusiasts to join the world of collaborative change.

Until we meet again, stay informed, stay healthy.
