What is RHL?

The WHO Reproductive Health Library (RHL) is a curated collection of high-quality evidence in reproductive health, published by the World Health Organization (WHO).

What is our mission?

RHL’s mission is to accelerate the implementation of new, high-quality evidence into reproductive health practice globally.

To achieve this, we systematically identify and summarize new evidence in reproductive health, and disseminate it globally. RHL strives for universal accessibility, to ensure high-quality evidence is available to all who need it.

Who are we?

RHL is published and co-ordinated by staff at the Department of Reproductive Health and Research at the World Health Organization in Geneva. We are guided by the RHL Editorial Board, an international group of reproductive health experts, clinicians and researchers.
