We have been using Social Media to promote the Malnutrition elearning course, developed by the Southampton University (UK) and the IMTF for the last 2 years. The material provides training on the treatment of children with acute and severe malnutrition and is suitable for doctors, nurses and public health/nutritionist students or experienced professionals. It can be used for individual study or in a formal classroom setting. The course is high quality learning for people dealing with malnutrition in health facilities and in the community. We have been using LinkedIn and Facebook to promote the course, and have had 7500 people enrol of the course, mostly through the Social Media campaign. Social Media is an excellent way of making contact with people who might benefit from the course, all round the world. We have therefore found that Social Media, and especially Linkedin can be used to achieve great global health outcomes. Please visit the course at the website below if you would like to know more about the Malnutrition course, and pass on details to colleagues and friends who might benefit. www.som.soton.ac.uk/learn/test/nutrition
