Research4Life makes thousands of scientific  journals and books available to students, researchers and practitioners in more than 115 areas and territories. How are they making use of this vast amount of information?

A librarian in Myanmar is modernizing the way of delivering literature to students, a physiotherapist in Ethiopia is finding better ways to treat his patients and researcher in Zimbabwe is tackling the burden of diabetes. These are just examples of the many stories we have gathered to show you how access to information can make a difference and improve the lives of those in need.
