Nepal   Knowledge Nexus,  Dhulikhel Hospital    /  Kathmandu University School  of Medical Sciences

In Nepal, 57% of the population lives on less than $3 a day. Despite Research4Life eligibility, access to and usage of medical literature is inadequate due to a lack of infrastructure and expertise. Dhulikhel Hospital (DH) and Kathmandu University School of Medical Sciences (KUSMS) have a unique reach across Nepal, providing health care degrees and extended care to 12 affiliated health centers and 20 community outreach centers in rural areas. The proposed multi-purpose learning facility will not only allow students and staff from DH/KUSMS to access Research4Life, but also staff at the rural centers across Nepal. Basic telemedicine capabilities with specialists at DH/KUSMS will further improve the quality of health services at these rural centers. This project has the potential to go far beyond a small infrastructure building grant to provide serious research on the effect of enabling access to major scientific, technical and medical information resources and how this affects health outcomes and the shift from print textbooks to online journals.

Strengthening professional ' s skills in evidence based health care in Tanzania,  Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences , Tanzania

Over the past ten years, access to critical health research has vastly improved across Africa, but this has yet translated into improved patient outcomes on a comprehensive scale. Today most patients in Tanzania benefit from medical treatment, but would benefit far more if health professionals provided care based on the latest scientific knowledge now available to them. With a grant from the Elsevier Foundation, Muhimibili University aims to build the skills and awareness necessary to create an evidence-based medical treatment culture across Tanzania. The training process will be matched with a national study measuring the results of providing information access and EBHC training, and to correlate these to changes in health care practices and eventually to health care outcomes.
