Health care is unequally distributed between the developed and developing worlds, which is matched by unequal distribution of health information. The information gap between rich and poor countries is so great it has been argued that “providing access to reliable health information for health workers in developing countries is potentially the single most cost effective and achievable strategy for sustainable improvement in health care.”1 So far, the most successful initiative to bridge this gap is the Health InterNetwork Access to Research Initiative (HINARI).
