TikTok Chosen As Platform for the World Health Organisation Videos On Corona-virus

Are you on Tik Tok?
If you want to see the latest videos from the most important organizations like the World Health Organizations videos about Coronavirus, The Red Cross or the Telegraph, you must get into Tick Tock.

TikTok is a worldwide sensation that has grown popularity over the years.
TikTok has over 500 million users a month and 41% of all TikTok users are between the ages of 16 and 24. TikTok is most popular in India with 119.3m users, then the USA with 39.6m users.

And it is not just now for the coronavirus, are taking to the new-ish platform to teach users about specific mental and physical health conditions and spread awareness on timely topics (like coronavirusvaping, and sexual health).

It's a space where doctors do belong, according to the Association for Healthcare Social Media (AHSM). "Because patients are exposed to or are seeking health knowledge on social media, health professionals should be present on social media to serve as accurate sources of medical information or otherwise risk having untrained individuals distribute information that could be wrong or interpreted out of context," says Austin Chiang, M.D., M.P.H., a gastroenterologist and president of the AHSM. 

"Some doctors may want to educate about the conditions they diagnose and treat. Others may want to share their experience, wisdom, or lifestyles to provide insight into the profession for young aspiring physicians. I do a little bit of everything!"

The doctors are meeting this younger audience where they're most engaged online, after all. (As for when you're offline and in the exam room, be sure to make the most of your time at the doctor's office.)
"TikTok provides a unique opportunity to humanize our profession, to help people familiarize themselves with our health system, and to restore trust in health professionals through creative and engaging content" says Dr. Chiang.

And this is evident through the comments on one of Dr. Shahine's videos, in which she talks about getting pregnant with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
