The Library Department held a one day workshop on 13/08/2019 to sensitize staff on the Africa Digital Health Library. The African Digital Health Library (ADHL) is a collaborative effort among medical librarians at major universities in sub Saharan Africa.

The librarians have challenged themselves to digitize and make available to anyone with an Internet connection the research carried out in the country – theses, dissertations, Ministry of Health reports, etc. This knowledge could be invaluable to anyone planning research in sub Saharan Africa and is also a good example of South-South sharing of information and collaboration. The knowledge could also be useful in programming, practice, policy, teaching and learning.

The University of Nairobi, College of Health Sciences has already developed a Digital Health Repository. The repository is part of the University Institutional repository and its content can be harvested accessed through the Africa Digital Health Library website http://adhl.africa
