YouTube Launches New Health Content Sections

YouTube: Director of YouTubes The Division of Public Health and Media Care Partnerships, Dr. Garth Graham, published a health-sharing text on the platform’s official blog. Now when searching for a specific topic, videos from relevant and reliable sources are highlighted.

In addition, the content from these sources is labeled with information about that instance so that users can better identify the verified content. In Brazil, the platform mainly collaborated with Fiocruz, Instituto Butantan, Hospital Sírio-Libanês and Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein to democratize access to information.

“This is our first step in identifying and pinpointing credible sources of health on YouTube,” said Brad. He added that the company is committed to “expanding eligibility and incorporating other health resources to continue expanding these resources globally.”

Finally, Brazilian health institutions also make videos based on scientific evidence that aim to explain everyday problems – such as the series on mental health in adolescence, which Sabará Hospital Infantil maintains, and Canal Butantan’s “Dimas Responds” videos.
