Creating a healthier world for all...
a place where new and re-emerging diseases ravage entire communities, where millions of people are infected and die because of ineffective decision-making and insufficient will to change due to lack of knowledge and resources.
This is Africa
Knowledge and resources already exist to help prevent the spread of diseases and improve health outcomes.
The Joanna Briggs Institute collaborates with groups in some of the poorest countries in the world where language, technology, geography and finance present significant challenges to the provision of healthcare. We are working with these groups to create an appropriate knowledge base to support health decisions and to make this knowledge readily available in developing countries.
You can help us get the best available knowledge into the hands of those who need it most, and improve health outcomes for the long term.
... but only if you possess it
