Africa Health : Insights on Public Health

Once again John Eyers, a retired librarian who worked at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, has surfed the world wide web to identify some leading websites for reliable resources in the field of public health.

He has written an article in the May 2012 issue of Africa Public Health and with the permission of the publisher Bryan Pearson it is freely available and may be downloaded free of charge.

In the references at the end of the article numbers 1 and 3 are fairly large PDF files, so those with low bandwidth may need to be cautious.

One Response to Africa Health : Insights on Public Health

    It’s a bit disappointing that in his article John Eyers didn’t find space for the African Health Observatory (http://www.aho.afro.who.int), the “one-stop-shop” for information about African health, nor the African Health Monitor (http://ahm.afro.who.int/issue11)… And what about the HIFA2015 repository? I guess he has been surfing in safer, more familiar First World waters and staying away from our more shark-infested ones… ! And BTW is the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Open Courseware site really relevant for African Health?
