Video Description: Anemia is a serious public health problem with the highest burden in women and young children. It is a complex condition caused by multiple factors which act through interwoven mechanisms, and differ by context. It is critical for policymakers and programmers to understand the anemia situation in their specific context, and to address anemia based on the information and evidence they have. As governments decentralize, it becomes even more important to work at the district level in a multi-sectoral approach that addresses the leading causes of anemia.

Video Description: With 2.4 billion people still lacking access to a toilet, our sanitation system is broken. This crisis is particularly evident in Haiti, which is home to the highest childhood diarrheal incidence rate in the world and the most virulent cholera epidemic in modern history. Many attempts to repair this system are themselves broken, focusing only on the provision of toilets and neglecting waste treatment.

Video Description: In many of the communities hit hardest by malnutrition, spread of relevant health information is limited by low penetration of radio and television and low literacy rates. Community video is an innovative approach to not only share information but build efficacy to change nutrition-related behaviors in rural communities. When community members see their neighbors model improved practice through videos made by those in their own community, they are more likely to believe they too can practice them.
