  • (The e-TALC ) CD-ROM has become the useful source of increasing our knowledge; and we have very few sources of updating our knowledge.

    — Dr Abulla Said, Doctor, Zanzibar, Tanzania

  • The information I found on the CD was precise, to the point, and most importantly, up to date. I have to say, 'JOB WELL DONE'

    — Dr Muhammad Rashid - Anaesthetist, Pakistan

  • The CD-ROMs were invaluable to me and in particular the tropical medicine, malaria, and skin topics were excellent.

Situation

Many doctors and healthcare workers in developing countries, particularly in rural settings have little or no Internet connectivity even though they may have a computer.

Solution

By providing a hand-picked selection of the most relevant and important articles and resources on a single CD, anyone with a computer can access a large amount of information relevant to their specialty whether it be clinical, nursing, nutrition or anything else. CDs are small and easily posted so thousands can be distributed for a very low cost.
