This video was so awkward that I stopped watching 45 seconds in. Which is a shame, because URC is a great organzation and Dr. Massoud seems like a great guy. I can't figure out if the video seems over-rehearsed or under.

V for Vaccine

I really wish this ludicrous vulgar vid actually worked as an advocacy tool. I don't think it gets its message across, though. It's a great effort but not quite there. Note: NSFW unless you work in health.

Duncan Green on the new edition of From Poverty to Power

Okay, I admit I spent most of this video pondering Duncan Green's accent. I can say, though, that I like his friendly approach and clear explanation, and I have always had a weakness for talking head on white background videos.

Neglected Tropical Diseases

Do not like this misery-heavy video on neglected tropical diseases. It's making a good point, but I think it's so clearly pulling at the heartstrings that it loses the viewer.

Trailer for the WEF 2013 Global Risks Report

This is nicely done. It gives a summary of the report for people who won't read it, and makes you want to read the report. Very professional soundtrack and editing.

Access to health care - a video from Mozambique

Notes: This is a nice introduction to the challenges of both providing and accessing health care. I like the way it features almost all voices from Mozambique. It has a variety of settings and voices, which add interest. It would be a good introduction for people unfamiliar with universal health coverage.
