Health workers in Tanzania benefit from open-access research thanks to INASP grant
The improvement of health and prevention of disease has long been central to international development policies worldwide. The attainment of good health has been prioritized by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals as Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and well-being for all at all ages. Part of making this a reality is ensuring that health professionals have access to the latest research and advancements in order to make informed medical decisions. If they are not able to access vital research information, patients will be put at risk and the health of communities will not improve.
It is therefore crucial that health workers in developing countries are able to make use of the vast body of open-access literature that authors and health-research grant recipients make freely available online.
New case study shares the difference that a grant to support promotion of open-access research is making to rural health in Tanzania.
