New Website Launched in Effort to Further the UN's Millennium Development Goals

"Research4Life is the collective name for three public-private partnerships which seek to help achieve the UN’s Millennium Development Goals by providing the developing world with access to critical scientific research.
Since 2002, the three programmes, Health Access to Research (HINARI), Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture (AGORA) and Online Access to Research in the Environment (OARE) , have given researchers at more than 5,000 institutions in 108 developing world countries free or low cost access to over 7,000 journals provided by the world’s leading science publishers."
Note that among CARICOM nations, institutions in St. Vincent & the Grenadines as well as Jamaica are eligible to participate!
