Hinari Workshop in Goroka Eastern Highlands Province, Papua New Guinea (13-17 February 2017)
WHO Papua New Guinea Country Office recently concluded training sessions to link up Goroka's Health Institutions with the best medical, scientific and health information from around the world through Hinari Access to Research for Health programme. The training was considered by participants as an enlightening success!
En effet, Hinari a été répliqué dans les domaines de l’agriculture, de l’environnement et de la recherche pour le développement et l’innovation et le tout composant Research4Life, un partenariat d’éditeurs, d’agences des Nations Unies, des bibliothèques universitaires, des associations professionnelles et des entreprises.
In public health, knowledge and information can be, quite literally, life-saving. For low income countries, especially in remote places, the latest health and medical information is not easy to come by – and usually comes at huge cost. That’s why the World Health Organization in a partnership with major scientific publishers established an online system, Hinari, to provide access for free, or very low cost, access to thousands of medical and scientific books and journals in low and middle income countries. This innovative system connects hospitals, universities and research institutes with the most up-to-date scientific and medical literature – meaning that distance and budget are no longer barriers to information that can save lives.
