The HINARI Access to Research in Health programme provides free or very low cost online access to the major journals in biomedical and related social sciences to local, not-for-profit institutions in developing countries.
The HINARI Programme, set up by the World Health Organization together with major publishers, enables people in developing countries to gain access to one of the world's largest collections of biomedical and health literature. More than 8,500 journals and 7000 e-books (in 30 different languages) are now available to local, not-for-profit institutions in eligible countries.
Eligibility is based on GNI per capita (World Bank figures), United Nations Least Developed Country (LDCs) List and Human Development Index (HDI).
This programme benefits many thousands of health workers and researchers, and in turn, contributes to improving world health.
Further information, including details of eligibility criteria, is available on the HINARI website.
The website is available in six languages including Arabic, English, French, Portuguese, Spanish and Russian.
