TRIP has become increasingly interested in improving access to the best available evidence for the developing world (see our crowdsourcing initiative).  In launching the initiative I’ve managed to meet a number of interesting people. 

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting the editor of the Africa-Health journal who’s knowledge and experience of the issues facing health professionals in the developing world was impressive.  We talked about a number of potential new projects but as ever funding is an issue.

I recommend readers of this blog, especially those in the so-called ‘developed world’ to spend some time reading the journal – it highlights the issues facing health professionals in these areas and gives a sobering perspective.
