By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
The world is a very small place and often there are positive even if unintended consequences of our actions.
One of Israel's medical providers is called Clalit. This medical provider created a YouTube video in Arabic.
The purpose of the video is to teach women in the Arabic sector about breast feeding. The provider expected to get a few hundred, perhaps even a thousand, hits.
One million and growing fast is well beyond their wildest hopes.
560,000 views from Saudi Arabia
168,000 from Egypt
90,000 from Iraq
42,000 from Jordan
Even 11,000 from Syria
Other successful videos put out by Clalit are about pregnancy, early detection of diseases and the importance of routine health checks.
Israel has one of the most advanced public health system in the world. Infants and mothers are required to see doctors three times in the first year of life in order to detect health problems at their earliest stages.
These Israeli YouTube videos are helping woman around the world, especially in the Arab world, to stay healthy.
