Since 2006, our Innovative Libraries grant program has supported capacity-building projects in developing countries across the globe through training, education, infrastructure digitization and preservation of information. With more than 10 years, 50 grants, and ca $2.5 million investment, we have provided libraries with grants supporting global health and research ecosystems.
In 2016, we wrapped up our Innovative Libraries program and launched two new sustainability-driven programs: Innovations in Health Information and Research in Developing Countries. Using a partnership model, the programs foster the delivery of healthcare in developing countries and widening access to academic knowledge. Research in Developing Countries does this through three main partnerships: a new Publishers without Borders module with the African Journal Partnership Program, an expanded Librarians without Borders program, and the TWAS North South Collaboration for Sustainability.
