YouTube will begin opening up access to the health product features it introduced in the U.S. last July to channels from certain categories of health information providers and healthcare professionals.

The platform’s health information panels and health content shelves were initially made available to organizations such as educational institutions, government entities, hospitals and public health departments.

Channels from health information providers and healthcare professionals can apply here, and they must: have proof of their license; follow best practices for health information sharing from the Council of Medical Specialty Societies, the National Academy of Medicine and the World Health Organization; and have a channel in good standing on YouTube.

YouTube said all channels that apply will be reviewed against these guidelines and their licenses will be verified.
