About New Orleans HINARI training

Thank you for your interest in attending  HINARI ‘Train the Trainers’ Workshop at the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine in New Orleans. If you anticipate doing scholarly work in a low or middle-income country, we hope that you will promote HINARI at the institution with which you will be affiliated. If you are already affiliated with a HINARI-registered institution, we anticipate that you will play an energetic role in creating awareness of HINARI and teaching other users in your institution how to effectively use it. 

Share the Flyer among your colleagues! Just download, print, and share widely!
