“Having staff write about their work in an open forum like a blog required something of a cultural shift,” says PSI’s Marshall Stowell. “As the platform gained in popularity and staff members started sharing ideas over the blog, the feedback was overwhelmingly positive.”

The blog was redesigned and relaunched in 2011, and is visited by more than 13,000 people each month. Commentary is regularly updated by leading global health technical experts who are designing advanced programs that reach further into rural communities, maximize the impact of every dollar spent, and generate lasting impact through cross-sector partnerships that build stronger health systems and train local health care providers. The blog covers a wide range of health issues including access to family planning, HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, and infectious diseases like malaria, TB, and diarrhea.
