The Charity Global Health Education
Global Health Education is a registered charity (no. 1146692) based in the UK. Global Health Education was set up as a charity to improve health through education, particularly in relation to the disease Tuberculosis which has a global impact.
What does Global Health Education currently do?
The charity has set up and is further developing the website TBFacts.org.
The TBFacts.org website
More than 4,000 people access the website each day. The person in charge of the site and who does the writing for the site is Annabel Kanabus.
Annabel has been writing for websites about HIV infection and Tuberculosis for the last thirty years. This included starting and developing for many years the website www.avert.org which became the most popular HIV/AIDS website during the time that Annabel worked at the charity AVERT.
The site is highly referenced in order that people reading the site can be confident about the source and accuracy of the information. Other volunteers help Annabel with checking out the factual information, but Annabel has overall editorial control and takes responsibility for the information provided.
The aim is to provide health information and education, rather than medical information. If people use the comment or contact us facility to tell us about their individual situation then we advise them to talk to a doctor or other health professional. The pages are regularly updated but only when new source documents are available. We do not update from news stories.
The information is not intended to replace but instead is intended to help people to have a dialogue with their doctor or other health professional. The information should not be used for the diagnosis or treatment of medical conditions, and is provided for information purposes only. A doctor or other health professional should always be consulted for the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions.
