Dailyhunt has announced a partnership with DW to bring content from the latter’s “Sehat Talk” series in short-video format to its platform. Curated under Dailyhunt’s Vibecheck programme, the ‘Vibecheck with DW’ series is presented in Hindi as well as Indian Sign Language in an effort to create inclusive content.
Created by DW Hindi, ‘Sehat Talk’ is a news show focussed on sharing information on mental and physical well being with a special focus on women’s health. The video series covers a wide range of topics, including menstrual health, pregnancy, nutrition and sexual well-being. The series has been curated based on studies published by the World Health Organisation, National Library of Medicine (USA) and Cancer Research UK, among others.
Taking on a unique approach towards content delivery, under the Vibecheck programme, Dailyhunt has on-boarded an interpreter from Inclusive Divyangjan Entrepreneur Association (IDEA) who co-hosts the ‘Vibecheck with DW’ series with DW’s Editor and communicates the news content in Indian Sign Language. As part of the collaboration, short videos are made available on DW Hindi’s channels on both Dailyhunt and Josh App.
“At Dailyhunt we believe that democratising the access to information is of utmost importance. We launched the Vibecheck programme to introduce an interactive news delivery format for Bharat and also create inclusive content for speech and hearing impaired (SHI) individuals to empower them with access. With our collaboration with DW, we aim to make information on health accessible to all women and thereby enable them to make informed decisions on their well-being. We believe that this video series will help to bridge the gap in information on women’s health and improve the lives of many Indians“, said Ravanan N, Executive Director, Eterno Infotech.
“We are thrilled to be working with Dailyhunt and Vibecheck on this unique and inclusive initiative and offer the knowledge of ‘Sehat Talk’. The ‘Vibecheck with DW’ series aims to raise awareness among women on various topics around health and encourage an open dialogue on issues that have been long stigmatised in Indian society. By curating the series in Indian Sign Language we will be able to spread awareness among a wider audience and further the potential of the series in breaking down barriers and making a real difference in the lives of women in India”, said Daniel Schulz, Distribution Manager India, Deutsche Welle.
