Click on the cover to access the publicationThe WHO Essential Medicines and Health Products Information Portal supports efforts to improve access to essential medicines and health products by making related, full-text articles available online. The portal receives support from the US Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceutical Services (SIAPS) Program, implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH).

The Portal contains 6112 medicines and health products related publications from WHO, other UN partners, global NGOs, development agencies and their partners, countries and academics, and is updated monthly. A powerful search engine ensures that documents can be identified easily. A facility exists to create sub collections on specific topics that can be exported and duplicated on DVDs or flash drives. We welcome additional submissions of relevant resource materials.

We hope that you find the contents useful, and would appreciate any feedback that would help us improve the library.
