health literature. 13,000 journals in 30 different languages,
29,000 eBooks and many other resources are available to
registered health institutions in 100 countries.
Meant to support the MDGs framework of the Health
InterNetwork, introduced by the United Nations' Secretary General
Kofi Annan at the UN Millennium Summit in the year 2000.
