The WHO's Global Index Medicus includes the regional Index Medicus of
Eastern Mediterranean (EMRO)
South-East Asia (SEARO)
Western Pacific (WPRO)
and is available at http://www.globalhealthlibrary.net/php/index.php .
It also links to:
AIM (AFRO), LILACS (AMRO/PAHO), IMEMR (EMRO), IMSEAR (SEARO), WPRIM (WPRO)
Regional Indexes, MEDLINE, SciELO
The Global Index Medicus appears to be an invaluable resource, but doesn't seem as well known as it should be. I would be interested in hearing people's experiences with using it (off list if you prefer).
