INASP Health Directory 2003/2004

The International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP) has launched the online INASPHealth Directory 2003/2004. The Directory is a networking tool for building professional relationships and sharing information, and a reference for those who are seeking technical and financial support. Listings include 240 international organizations and programmes worldwide that are working to improve access to information for health professionals in developing and emerging countries. Each entry gives full contact details and a short description of relevant activities.

Presented in two parts, part 1 includes organisations that provide health information, while part 2 describes organisations that support book, library and information development, including a section on health.

The INASP-Health Directory 2003/2004 is supported by Exchange, a networking and learning programme on health communications for development (http://www.healthcomms.org). Available free of charge at http://www.inasp.info/pubs/healthdir/, it is designed to complement 'INASP Health Links', the internet gateway to selected websites for health professionals, medical library communities, publishers, and NGOs in developing and transitional countries (see online at http://www.inasp.info/health/links/contents.html)

The Directory is also available on CD-ROM (thanks to e-TALC), and a limited number of printed copies will be available free of charge to medical libraries in developing countries.

For comments, suggestions for improvement, and recommendations for new entries, contact Neil Pakenham-Walsh at email: health@inasp.info
