Here's a re-cap: BlogHers Act is a year-long initiative in which members of BlogHer, both on BlogHer’s network and in our extended communities, will work to make a measurable improvement in Global Health (as distinct from BlogHer's Election 2008 Voter Manifesto initiative focused on the domestic issues of importance to Presidential candidates).

BlogHers Act will take a two-pronged approach to improving Global Health:

The members of BlogHer and our extended communities will work together to select a single global health issue on which we want to effect a measurable improvement in the coming year. By measurable, we seek to demonstrate progress on Global Health via key metrics to be determined (e.g., signatures, votes, donations, letters, live births, etc.). We will use an array of online and offline resources, actions and initiatives to deliver and report on this impact.

BlogHers Act also will encourage members who want to create their own, separate campaigns on issues of their choice to do so, and to report back to the BlogHers Act initiative. Wherever possible and notified, the BlogHers Act team will work to include these efforts in the final report of BlogHers Act project results.

PLEASE post the poll on your blog and email it to your friends (you'll see the easy links to do both at the bottom of the poll)!! It is important to get as many votes as possible.

We'd love to hear from you if you have ideas for outreach projects or would like to help with BlogHers Act this year. Get ready to make a difference on global health!!
