Library and Information Networks for Knowledge

Virtual Health Library

The Virtual Health Library (VHL) is a library, a decentralized and dynamic information-source collection, designed to provide equitable access to scientific knowledge on health. It is maintained by BIREME, a PAHO Specialized Center. This collection operates as an Internet network of products and services, structured to progressively meet the need for information on health on the part of authorities, administrators, researchers, professors, students, professionals, the media and the general public. It sets itself apart from other information sources available on the Internet due to its selection criteria and quality control.
