Utan kostnad har nu både läkare och patienter tillgång till ett
referensverk inom
kvinnomedicin som saknar sin like. En enkel tanke storslaget utfört.

650 specialister har utan ekonomisk ersättning tillsammans skapat ett
verk i 442 kapitel
och 53 supplement med över 40.000 referenser till glädje för läkare,
inte minst i tredje
världen och för alla kvinnliga patienter.

Men Global Library of Women's Medicine visar att det finns generositet,
öppenhet och hjälpsamhet även inom den medicinska kunskapsproduktionen. Allt
handlar inte om pengar.

Medicin är väl annars mest känt som det område där den globala
tidskriftsindustrin
gör enorma vinster.

Här har ett verk skapats som bara väcker beundran för ett så hedervärt
mål som
att förbättra den medicinska vården för alla kvinnor i hela världen.

Tisdag morgon kunde inte ha startat bättre!

The Global Library of Women's Medicine has launched online and is
freely available to all. Over 650 world experts provide a
definitive resource on the latest therapeutic options in women's
medicine for doctors and women concerned about their health. The
Library is free to view at: www.glowm.com.

The Global Library of Women's Medicine, was launched at a dinner
held at The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in
London last night. It is a unique web library incorporating a
vast range of detailed clinical information across the whole
field of women's medicine. It consists of 442 main chapters and
53 supplementary chapters, supported by over 40,000 references,
which will be kept permanently up-to-date. The chapters have been
written by more than 650 specialists and will reflect some of the
very best worldwide opinion.

The Global Library of Women's Medicine is primarily designed for
the medical profession, however, most of the information will
also be accessible by anyone else who wants to try and understand
more about the therapeutic options available to women, this
includes a section on Safer Motherhood. In addition, there are
innovative features freely available to registered users, that
are aimed at medical professionals, including surgical videos,
specialist colour atlases of visual medicine, comprehensive
guidance to laboratory tests and the significance of their
results,- and even an option to provide doctors with selected
patient information handouts.

The Global Library of Women's Medicine will support doctors and
other health professionals in their care of women. As an open
access resource it is hoped that in addition to providing an
expert resource for the medical profession in the Western World,
it may also be of real value to doctors and others in parts of
the Developing World where access to current clinical information
has always been challenging.

All the expert authors and editors of The Global Library of
Women's Medicine have generously made their contributions without
any form of financial remuneration - and the British publishers
have originated, developed and implemented the site entirely from
their own funds - in order to support this significant global
initiative which it is hoped may make some contribution to the
ongoing efforts to improve women's healthcare around the world.
