Improving the availability and use of health research information in LMICs (6) Hinari

7 February, 2020

Critical issues, here. Would particularly commend folks to look at/use WHO's Health InterNetwork Access to Research Initiative site:

https://www.who.int/hinari/about/en/

Hinari Programme set up by WHO together with major publishers, enables low- and middle- income countries to gain access to one of the world's largest collections of biomedical and health literature. Up to 16,000 journals, up to 63,000 e-books, up to 105 other information resources are now available to health institutions in more than 120 countries, areas and territories benefiting many thousands of health workers and researchers, and in turn, contributing to improve world health.
