"The resources in Hinari have increased over the years. Now when I go in, I find there is no time to see all the new e-resources that have been added. It is just a fantastic resource for everyone, especially those in health/medicine/nursing fields" (Papua New Guinea)

Hinari is not just about information, it is also about people. Your contribution lets us nurture and encourage these people, building capacity for positive change in developing countries.
