Abstract

Promoting Public Access to Health information: Experience of the Association for Health Information and Library in Africa, AHILA-Tanzania Chapter

Health is an essential aspect for development. People with poor health and malnourished in the community fail to work hard and hence slow down the development of a nation. Promoting and improving public access to nutrition and health related information is a most important activity in people’s livelihood in the community. The purpose of this article is to discuss initiatives of the project that was conducted by Association for Health Information and Libraries in Africa (AHILA)–Tanzania Chapter in promoting and improving public access to health information. The project activities started June 2013 and ended September 2013. The project was executed by Tanzania Food and Nutrition Centre library in collaboration with Association for Health Information and Libraries–Tanzania Chapter (AHILA TZ Chapter) and Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MoHSW). The article also discusses the achievement, challenges and lessons learned from the project.
