Improving Global Healthcare One Book at a Time
Describe your company and organization and target audience
Global Medical Libraries (GML) is a global initiative focused on improving the standard of healthcare in developing countries by providing donated medical educational resources, which contribute to advancing the quality of pre-service education.
Improve global healthcare one book at a time.
Global Medical Libraries will significantly enhance the initial and continuing medical education of healthcare professionals in communities crippled by the lack of materials, with which to teach, learn and provide healthcare of all kind, through donated medical education resources.
Global Medical Libraries is a re-branding of Operation Medical Libraries (OML) and will be launched on the project's 10th anniversary (4/4/17) OML, formerly known as Books without Borders, sent its first shipment to Iraq in 2007. In spring 2008, the name was changed due to a name conflict with an unrelated organization.
This project exists to shrink the educational gap in all areas of the health sciences in developing countries, which face the same problem: doctors and nurses go without the latest professional information they need to provide proper healthcare to their patients.
In response to this urgent demand for living saving knowledge, over the last decade the project has built a powerful collaboration between publishers, authors, universities and hospitals to provide formal medical references and continuing education materials for health sciences students and professionals living in the developing world.
Since the program’s inception in April 2007, over $2.5 million of health sciences (dentistry, nursing, and medical) textbooks have been donated to 24 countries: Afghanistan, Antiqua, Chad, China,Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Germany, Haiti, Iraq,Namibia, Malawi, Morocco-Western Sahara region, Mozambique, Pakistan, Philippines, Republic of Fiji, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands,South Sudan,Tanzania,
Turkey (Turkish Syrian Border), Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe
Those who can donate health sciences textbooks, including professional graduate schools (MD/DO, DDS and RN); individual health sciences professionals, health sciences libraries, medical associations and medical book publishers.
