Health Information on CDROM for healthcare workers in developing countries

These have been produced by Teaching Aids at Low Cost (TALC) since 2001, but not everyone may know about them. They are especially useful in places where internet access is slow or absent. If you know of libraries or resource centres in your country that could make use of them (including public libraries), I am sure they would be much appreciated. Click on link to find out more.

“A variety of electronic resources are included on the e-TALC CD-ROM including journals, books, newsletters and interactive educational content. These resources are donated by a variety of NGOs, publishers and individuals involved in health and development in developing countries. The resources are sorted and chosen for inclusion on future issues of e-TALC by our expert editorial board who make their selection based on the relevance of the resource to health care workers in resource-poor settings.”
