What is RHL?

The WHO Reproductive Health Library (RHL) is an electronic review journal published by World Health Organization. RHL contains summaries of primarily Cochrane systematic reviews on sexual and reproductive health interventions. The summaries include suggestions for clinicians (and where relevant for policy-makers), especially in developing countries, on how to implement the evidence in health-care practice.

Main content in RHL:

  • Full text of selected systematic reviews (primarily Cochrane reviews) on sexual and reproductive health interventions
  • Summaries of evidence in systematic reviews with guidance on implementation in health-care practice
  • A set of training videos to help clinicians master details of manual and surgical procedures - RHL videos
  • A set of published journal articles and other materials to help understand and practice evidence-based sexual and reproductive health care - Methodological resources
