AHILA Resolutions 2012

This information is available on AHILA-Net but for those of you who do not see this, the following is taken from a brief feedback on AHILA 13 by the President, Nasra Gathoni.

  • Mapping/documenting of information literacy training in AHILA member institutions (short courses, modules integrated in existing curriculum, IL sessions etc.)
  • Research to document the role of librarians in the implementation of R4L
  • Prepare two annotated bibliographies of research so far done by AHILA members in AHILA Member countries on (1) e-resources utilization and management (2) information literacy
  • AHILA to provide training support to its members where there is a lack of capacity. This is to include health information retrieval skills and evidence based practice.
  • Strengthen support between AHILA and its Country Chapters (Country to Country)
  • Encourage community librarianship – reaching out to the community with health information in collaboration with partners e.g. Ministry of Health, development partners and local authorities.
  • Intensify the efforts to strengthen health information access by all i.e. public and associate communities through the creation and dissemination of information.
  • Encourage marketing and advocacy to promote accessibility and availability of health information
  • Carry out training sessions for Health Information Professionals and produce information that will allow personal, professional and political decision-making.
