Weekend viewing – Vale Hans Rosling

Hans was a great communicator of public health ideas and information, who also sought to challenge mis-information and misconceptions.

You may have heard of his TED talks, or the Gapminder project that worked wonders with how to visualise UN and other data sets.

There’s a sketch of his life and work in the Guardian newspaper but rather than waffle on about that, it is probably more fitting to see Hans in action … (and yes, the video was made before the Sustainable Development Goals were announced)
