As a reminder, the 2018 BMA Information Fund [https://www.bma.org.uk/collective-voice/influence/international/global-health/information-fund] is open for applications until 28 September. The fund provides health information and educational materials to health-focused organisations in low-income countries. Materials available include books, practical guides and tools, CDs and DVDs.
We work in in partnership with the charity Health Books International [https://healthbooksinternational.org/] to provide resources that are tailored to the specific education and training needs of health workers operating in low-resource settings.
You may wish to read the case studies [https://www.bma.org.uk/collective-voice/influence/international/global-health/information-fund#Previousinitiatives] on our webpage for examples of previous recipients who have made great use of the fund!
The following types of organisations can apply:
Health-focused non-governmental organisations
Human rights and community development organisations involved in local capacity-building
