e-Publications – Eastern Mediterranean Region series

Print PDF

The e-Publications series is an e-publishing initiative of the Regional Office. The series makes health and biomedical science information easily accessible for Member States, development partners, interested agencies and individuals worldwide. The availability of electronic publishing and dissemination of health information products on CD-ROM/DVD enhances equity of access to health information in the Region and beyond, in particular, for those countries which lack adequate internet access. 

The main objectives of the e-Publications series are to:

expand the open access initiative for health information products for Member States regionally and worldwide

increase efficiency and cut costs in producing and distributing information products

promote awareness of the activities of the Regional Office, in particular, and of WHO, in general

strengthen and support e-health activities in the Region

promote environmentally-friendly distribution of information products

support implementation of the regional strategy for knowledge management and sharing in organizing, mapping and sharing up-to-date and valid health information products.

The e-Publications series is a means for sharing and disseminating health knowledge with policy-makers and health care personnel in the Region, including decision-makers, planners, health professionals, health workers and medical librarians. In itself it will also promote greater use of electronic publishing tools and approaches in the Region.
