Librarians and healthcare information (4)

4 January, 2019

Just an FYI, HIFA has presented to librarians and others often. In November, as part of Humanitarian Evidence Week, the National Library of Medicine Disaster Information Management Research Center hosted a webinar “Accessing the Evidence During Times of Crisis” which included reference to HIFA https://disasterinfo.nlm.nih.gov/webinars#2018

In November 2017, Dr. Neil Pakenham-Walsh presented “Humanitarian Evidence Week: Improving the availability of reliable health information” https://disasterinfo.nlm.nih.gov/webinars#2017

It is important that we all work together to spread the word of our information resources. There are always more people who don’t know about them than do. The struggle is real!
