Web 2.0 in global health: the road to a culture of sharing

Today’s online collaboration tools and techniques, often referred to as “Web 2.0”, combined with the rapid spread of the internet, the convergence of the web with mobile devices and the improvement of connection speeds in developing countries, offer unprecedented opportunities in health communications.
