Free Medical and Healthcare Guides
Hesperian Digital Commons
Here is a mini-library for healthcare providers/educators to download these files and make digital copies in order to share in-country via flash drive where internet connectivity is poor. They are parsed by chapter, in case you need only certain topical areas.
These free online resources are used by over 20,000 people every day. Help our colleagues at Hesperian continue to provide this essential information to communities in need by giving a gift to Hesperian, or buying directly from them.

APA’s Division 52 International Research Database Resource
The American Psychological Association's Division 52 (International Psychology) Student Committee has compiled “International Research Databases,” which involved collecting the names of various online research databases located in different countries across the globe. The goal is to highlight the utility of using these databases when designing and conducting research studies, rather than solely relying on databases in the U.S. This direct link to a Google Form (https://bit.ly/3ppwfdA) allows anyone to edit. If you know of databases that are not included in this resource, please feel free to add the information. Special thanks to Rawan Atari-Khan, Chair, Amy Sisson, Co-Chair, and Daniel Balva, Co-Chair, Task Force on International Research Database and Student Chair, Division 52.
