Elsevier Foundation announces 2010 grants for libraries in developing countries
Date:12/16/2010

Community Health Problem Solving, Makerere University, Uganda
  • Increasing access to relevant health information for primary healthcare providers through Kenyan public libraries, Book Aid International, UK and Kenya
  • Health Information Network in Cameroon, Centre International de Reference "Chantal Biya" (CIRCB)

    "The Elsevier Foundation and our board of reviewers have the opportunity to review proposals from libraries and their supporters from all of over the world. These ten programs are just a few examples of the extraordinary contribution that libraries are making to global health and development," noted David Ruth, Executive Director of the Elsevier Foundation and Senior Vice President Global Communications, Elsevier.

    "INCTR is pleased to know that the Elsevier Foundation supports innovative projects that help raise the global profile of research conducted in low and middle income countries. This is especially important in the area of cancer, where these poorer resourced countries are collectively having to bear the burden of the majority of global cancer incidence and mortality," remarked Mark Lodge, Director of Program Development, INCTR.

    "This award will allow the Penn Libraries to take our experience and findings in Botswana--also supported by the Elsevier Foundation--and apply what we learned in another underserved, yet unique environment: rural Guatemala. We continue to use innovative solutions to provide access to information towards the ultimate goal of improving health." Anne Seymour, project PI, and Associate Director, Biomedical Library.
