The Virtual Health Library
The Virtual Health Library (VHL) is a project of the Public Health
Promotion Centre (ZG), German Foundation for International Develop-
ment. It is a continuously updated digital health sciences library
stored on computers and available 24 hours a day. The VHL provides
distance learning materials and recommended reading lists to decision
makers of health service, physicians and other health care profes-
sionals in developing countries on a variety of health issues.
The VHL may be used to answer public health care questions, thus ex-
tracting the latest information from the Public Health Promotion Cen-
tre workshops and publications. The same information may be used for
continuing health education, delivering it to health care profession-
als and physicians' offices and homes at their convenience.
The VHL is built on existing Internet communication standards and
uses the world wide web (WWW) software technology to store, organise,
and distribute our information. We define the VHL as a programme that
furnishes its users with broad educative information based on the
ZG's work experiences and targeted at the required national and re-
gional needs of developing countries.
