One SDHI website: Two ways to get to it

We have said ‘Good bye’ to our old website! After several months work we have moved most of our current and recent past web content to this new site. The ‘archive’ is not lost, and we will restore some of the content over the next few months. Why a new website?

A refreshed look

The time had come to give SDHI a bit of a ‘facelift’. An optimistic, dynamic red. A new, recognisable logo. A refreshed SDHI research strategy.

Easy navigation

We want our website to be easy to use and to navigate. The blog format of the site allows us to add new pages and content as we need them.

Frequent news updates

We use two primary channels for news updates. The website itself lists under the news tab developments around events, grants, publications, and other activities, SDHI is involved in. Several posts will be made each month. The Twitter feed captures on a near daily basis relevant news items from around the globe with relevance to the Social Dimensions of Health, Wellbeing and Participation.

Opportunities for interactivity and dynamic development

The web-based content will grow along with new projects, partnerships, events and activities. We want to use the website, not only as a repository for information but as a ‘marketplace’ of ideas, a forum for collaboration and interactivity.

Multimedia content

The new site allows us easy and flexible integration of multimedia content, such as images, videos, slideshows and podcasts. Our team can post updates regularly and frequently, which will make it more attractive to come back to our site.

Social networking

The SDHI website is integrated with Facebook and Twitter and news updates are posted on all of these fora. This allows us to ‘stream’ real time content to SDHI partners, and we can use these social networking tools to promote collaboration around the globe.

We hope you will like our site, which will continue to evolve. You can reach our site now via
