The following journals
offer free online access to developing economies, based on either
programs such as HINARI,
or on a HighWire-based program offering access to countries appearing
in the World
Bank's list of "low income economies," plus Djibouti. Individual
publishers use the list from the World Bank as a guideline for determining
their policies, so some variation in access per publisher does occur.

The International Community
Trust for Health and Educational Services (ICTHES World Care) publishes
four medical journals:
Supported by some
of the UK's leading skin specialists, 'CD' seeks to provide health
workers with up-to-date and relevant information on the diagnosis
and treatment of skin disease, and the general promotion of skin
health within their communities. This publication, in particular,
has many photographs and other illustrations to aid health workers
in diagnosis and treatment.
Community Ear and Hearing
Produced in partnership
with the World Health Organization and Christian Blind Mission,
'CEHH' seeks to deal with the prevention, management and rehabilitation
of ear and hearing disorders, whilst at the same time promoting
ear and hearing health in developing countries.
Developing Mental Health
Is designed to respond
to global mental health issues. Mental health workers are particularly
under-resourced in the developing world. It was founded after direct
consultation with mental health specialists from 20 developing nations.
Repair and Reconstruction
Addresses major needs
throughout the world such as 'Burn Injury', 'Land-Mine Injury',
'Leprosy' and 'Congential Abnormalities in Children'. Two issues
of 'R&R' have already been produced, focusing on 'Burn Injury'.
This Journal is produced in partnership with the Overseas Interest
Group of the British Association of Plastic Surgeons. Publication
is currently suspended for editorial reasons but it is hoped to
resume publishing as soon as possible.
