Help needed: Evidence based practice resources in languages other than English

8 October, 2019


Dear All,

As part of our work for the IFLA Evidence for Global and Disaster Health Special Interest Group (, we created a guide to Finding the Evidence for Global and Disaster Health (

We would like to compile a similar guide containing resources produced in languages other than English. We know of Evidence Aid, Medbox, and the World Health Organization, but we imagine there are many more that we should be aware of. If you know of a resource that is relevant to this topic, could you send me details please? [*see note below]

With very many thanks, from,


Dr Caroline De Brún, DipLIS
