HINARI logoThe HINARI (Health InterNetwork Access to Research Initiative) programme, established by WHO together with major publishers, enables developing countries to gain access to one of the world's largest collections of biomedical and health literature. More than 8500 journals and 7000 e-books (in 30 different languages) are available to health institutions in more than 100 countries, areas and territories benefiting many thousands of health workers and researchers, and in turn, contributing to improving world health.
