The 10 Twitter accounts you should follow this summer

Wherever you find yourself this summer, if you can find Wi-Fi, you can get the latest on global health. Twitter has established itself as a valuable way to stay in touch with the global community and be in the know the instant something happens domestically or internationally. In a world more connected than ever, it’s possible to be a part of the conversation from around  he world. To follow-up on a recent post by my fellow blogger @EmilyDrewry2015, here are 10 additional Twitter accounts you should be following this summer to make sure you are in the know:

  1. @WHO – “Official account of the World Health Organization, the United Nations’ Health agency.”
  2. @BBCHealth – “Health news, features, analysis from the BBC, via an automated feed of website headlines.”
  3. @UNAIDS – “The goal of UNAIDS is to lead and inspire the world in getting to zero: zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination, and zero AIDS-deaths.”
  4. @JohnsHopkinsIH – “The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Department of International Health is the oldest and largest global health department in the world.”
  5. @Laurie_Garrett– “Sr Fellow @CFR_org. Pultizer Prize Winner. Author: I Heard the Sirens Scream (2011), The Coming Plague & Betrayal of Trust. Views here are my own.”
