How we help
We send health / medical books and information to people around the world to improve health in developing countries. Our resources are available through our shop by mail order and as downloads.
We provide a vital lifeline of up-to-date, relevant clinical resources to those working in extremely challenging settings. There may be unreliable access to electricity or the internet; diagnostic and treatment options may be limited.
We choose materials that are specially written for use in developing countries. Their use has enabled doctors, nurses, midwives and community health workers to make the right diagnosis and provide the right treatment, resulting in the saving of many lives and livelihoods and alleviating pain and suffering.
Our materials are valued by health workers striving in difficult conditions to improve people’s health – including including community health workers, nurses, traditional birth attendants and midwives, laboratory workers, nurses, and doctors from all medical and surgical specialities. We supply affordable resources from illustrated books to flannelgraphs, DVDs and online materials to accessories such as rehydration spoons and tape measures.
