Global Health News at Global Health Hub
The Global Health Hub is a 100% volunteer driven effort to provide an online gateway to news, commentary and resources related to global health and development from around the web. The Hub aggregates content from traditional and non-mainstream sources to help people interested and involved in global health & development to quickly find information. We also compose original news and commentary pieces to provide a dynamic information portal for the global health & development community. Visit http://GlobalHealthHub.org.
Countway Library offers classes on "Health Information: Access for Developing Countries" on a regular basis.
The class provides an overview of the HINARI program from WHO. HINARI offers access to biomedical and health information. Clinical and educational institutions in developing and emerging countries are eligible to participate. We will also discuss other open access sources. If you are conducting research, volunteering, or returning to live in a developing or emerging country, you can help others become aware of and use these resources so they can find information and improve health.
These brown bag sessions are held from 12:30- 1:30 and participants are welcome to bring their lunch. You can find a list of the current offerings at https://www.countway.harvard.edu/classes
