YouTube is rolling out new health features on its platform in India. The video streaming platform has introduced fresh health source information panels, which will label videos from credible health organisations and government institutions. This can be used to identify data from trusted sources. Additionally, the Google Owned video platform has also brought health content shelves in search results that highlight videos from authoritative sources.

Users in Brazil, India, and Japan will notice new features alongside health-related searches and videos beginning this week. Note that both the new wellness features will be accessible in Hindi as well as English. YouTube has also partnered with leading health organisations around the world to create video content and make it easier for users to find authoritative information related to health.

Health source information panels on YouTube videos have also been added to assist viewers in identifying videos from authoritative sources, as well as health content shelves that more effectively highlight videos from these sources when searching for specific health topics. These contextual cues are intended to assist people in more easily navigating and evaluating credible health information. In their search results, people will still be able to find relevant videos from a variety of channels.

A set of principles developed by a panel of experts convened by the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) in the United States have been included to determine which sources to include in health features. As per YouTube, the World Health Organization and NAM recently convened a meeting of international interdisciplinary experts to review and validate principles for global application.

“We’re also expanding the use of product features to surface credible and relevant health information that was first launched in the U.S. last year. Starting this week, users in Brazil, India, and Japan will also see new features next to some health-related searches and videos. In the coming months, we’ll continue to expand these features to other countries” YouTube via its blog post noted.
