Improving public access to health information: case studies from Africa

eahil 2014 poster

The President of the Association for Health Information and Libraries and the Director of Partnerships in Health Information are pictured beside their poster, showing how the two organisations have worked together to improve public access to health information, with case studies from Africa.
This event took place at the European Association for Health Information and Libraries Conference held in Rome (June 11-13). The papers and posters covered a wide range of subjects including public access and student use of tablets. We intend to post a few of these later.

One Response to Improving public access to health information: case studies from Africa

  1. The presentation is a wonderful idea. Working together to improve access to health information especially those spearheaded by medical librarian in Africa is a vision shared by all of us. improving the general public and medical students access to health information will go a long way in improving the health of the community especially in the developing countries Uganda inclusive. We should therefore continue working together to improve access to health information for development. Thank all of you.
