Dr Margaret Chan, Director General WHO, visiting IHI in 2009About
Welcome to our new website. We hope that this will showcase the work of Ifakara Health Institute, make information much more accessible, and keep our partners and collaborators abreast of developments. The front page of our site includes rolling Accouncements and Featured content. You can subscribe to the site to be alerted to updates.
As an integral part of the website, we are in the process of building two exciting new online services. The new Digital Library will provide Tanzania's first electronic library dedicated to health-related material. This will include journal articles, reports, presentations, research theses and other useful reference material. We invite any interested party to contribute to the archive so that it becomes a collective reference resource. Another work-in-progress is the IHI Data Portal, through which up-to-date results can be accessed for the Health and Demographic Surveillance Sites (HDSS), the Sentinel Panel of Districts (SPD) and the Clinical Surveillance System (CSS). IHI is committed to help translate research into knowledge and practice. We hope that this new website goes some way towards this ambition and - with your feedback - will strive to improve it.
